Safe to cut?

I’ve got some 4mm Oak Veneered MDF with 3mm of cork glued to the bottom with gorilla wood glue.

Would it be safe to cut through both layers of this without any harm coming to myself of the machine?

The wood glue contains a mixture of 3(2H)-isothiazolone, 5-chloro-2methyl- with 2methyl-3(2H)-isothiazolone.

Total of 7mm thick?

Cork is hard to cut by itself. If it’s also got msg I think it might be a tough thing to get through.

@rbtdanforth cuts a lot oftougher materials. Maybe he has some pointers?


whats msg?

I think it’s MDF mis typed.

haha no problem. Nothing in the wood glue should cause a problem?

MSG is generally found in food to enhance the flavor. Should be good to cut…:rofl::rofl:


Basically, Proofgrade plys are hardwood on MDF though the percentage of hardwood may be different, propper cork is made from the bark of Cork Oak but today, who knows? I have not yet tried to cut cork of any sort. Best I think is to try to find a place that you can test and let that be the final say. I use it a lot and it has often surprised me.
