Hi /diy/

Can I have some good resources on wood working?

I've bought a heap of 9mm MDF and some thicker supporting "beams", which will be used to attach pieces together and add structure/strength.

What I'm building is a cockpit enclosure. I'll use some good strength wood glue and either nails or screws. It'll be made from a side flat piece and a number of boxes to attach to.

If I can get some good material on good joints, things not to do, etc that'd be great.

The best advice anyone can give you is, wear a fucking respirator when working with MDF
Use very high quality blades when cutting MDF, because cutting MDF is tough and dulls your shit quick.

9mm is really thin shit to be building something like that...

Nothing is going to be particularly structural or load bearing. Anything that may take a little extra abuse will have internal reinforcements, so it's cladding round a structure inside.

I'll keep a note on good blades and making sure to use a good vacuum system to capture all the dust etc, thanks.

If any of what you're doing is going to be outside or exposed to the elements, forget it. MDF soaks up moisture like kitchen towel. Weak as fuck when it's damp.
>>

Indoor only. And by the end it won't be exposed mdf. Either painted or vinyl wrapped.
>>
>>934893
That's OK then man. MDF is good indoors but shit where moisture is present.
>>
>>934700
What kind of joints do you plan on doing?
>>
>>934972
My expectation is, a core piece of 21mmx36mm as an internal structure, the mdf glued and nailed to that. I also have metal corner brackets that could be used as an alternative

Also if you want to get fancy with it, I've got the outer trim of a cockpit measured and modeled
>>
>>935422
Nope, different guy. But any details I'd be interested
>>
>>935434
We've based our measurements of the cockpit on a book about typical distances a human would expect to be in for access to all the controls. The outer shell is very basic, so could be interesting to make it look the part from the outside. We've mainly focused on the inside aspect.
