Decent MFC... does it exist? If so, where can i buy some at a sensible price?

I want 8-9 linear metres, about 300mm wide, ideally 18mm.

Everything ive looked at so far seems to have a really thin melamine, with junk edges.
I want something half decent, as itll be used for building a vanity tye unit (bedroom, sink only) so not subject to steam etc like a bathroom...
Doors will probably be off the peg Ikea, or similar.

Ideally you would want to buy sone Egger or kronospan mfc. But It comes in large sheets and needs edge banding.

1 sheet would be enough as they are 2800 x 2070.

There are companies that will cut and edge for you.

Hitch have a look at the Screwfix ones, they are great value and good quality for the price. I have just fitted one and it looks really nice. See http://www.screwfix.com/c/bathrooms-kit ... anityunits

Not worth making your own at that price for cabinet and sink.

Trouble is it wants to be a certain size, all the off the peg ones are too deep so need butchering anyway, plus change the doors.
Sink I've got, top I've got too.

Another vote for Egger, here. Kronospan is OK, as is Caber, but Egger tends to chip out less on the edges if you blade isn't 100% I've found. Avoid the cheap and nasty stuff sold by the big box stores if you want the best.

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
