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?
