There are some questions from our recent post on Siam Sawadee’s Facebook about how Balinese MDF Panels could relate to the April Fools’ Day.
Well, we probably should go back to what April Fools’ Day is.
April Fools’ Day, also called All Fools’ Day, is celebrated every April 1st in the United States. While it is not officially recognized as a holiday, many celebrate by pranking, or pulling practical jokes on, their colleagues or by organizing larger-scale hoaxes.
While Americans will typically
shout, “April Fools!” after pulling off a prank, Europeans sometimes refer to the holiday as “April Fish,” as many observers will tack a paper fish to another’s back and yell “April Fish!” However, the individual pranked is still referred to as the “Fool.” Fish are often featured on European April Fools’ Day cards. Traditional pranking often stops at midday in the United Kingdom, and if one pranks after this time, they themselves become the fool.
The fact about MDF is it is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibers, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is generally denser than plywood. It is made up of separated fibers, but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is stronger and much denser than particle board.
So now you know that MDF is a transformed wood, not the real whole wood. Our Balinese MDF panels look pretty the same as our reclaimed teak wood panels that’s why we or anyone can fool themselves by mistaking the MDF panels as the reclaimed teak wood panels.
