Hi, some advice would be brilliant.

I'm panelling a nook for a client with 9mm butt and bead cladding made from green MDF.
They want a shelf recess turning into a cupboard with the same material.

The question is how to thicken this stuff to make it thicker and more able to take hinge screws?

I tried laminating with 5mm ply over the weekend but it has banana'd by an inch (different materials/expansion? Under floor heating?)

Do I just need a better flat surface than the (unbeknown to me, heated) floor?
Should I think of framing the back with 15mm battens instead?

Dunno, what's the best approach?

Many thanks.

Glue same to same. Another piece of 9mm glued on makes up and 18mm thickness which is ideal. Use a non water glue to avoid any bending. If you have a router you could make your own panels up using a thicker board. The cutter is the biggest expense though.

cut and store in the same room for several days to acclimatize to reduce the expansion risk to a minimum
it may be easier to remake in 12mm mdf

Hmmm, thought you might say that. Guess I'm off to buy more panels then...

Thanks.
