After reading John's thread (post #20) I'm not so sure I'll continue doing this without prepping the MDF first. And as this stuff works better with a small amount of moisture (I generally wipe one surface with a dmap cloth before applying it) I'm not sure that I'll continue using it with speaker joints.

That said, all I can remember at the moment is that it's got a 'mostly' green label, and that iut's been sitting in the dark cupboard for about 4 months, unused and unloved. I'll see if I remember to look at it and post when I get home...

Hi Jon,
A small amount of moisture applied to the surface prior to the urethane glue shouldn't be too much of a problem. My reference in that thread is for the kind of finish that Ant (Shinobiwan) does and Gordan (Sploo) is doing - the high gloss piano black.
Given an adequate time to dry out, it should be fine.

Agreed. My prep has previously not involved sealing the inside of the cabinets before construction. As they're invariably sealed boxes I haven't worried too much - but as the bones get older (I think I've got 3 years on you) the number of boxes I intend to build gets smaller. So I want to do them right.
