Anyone ever use this? It would seem to be a nice choice for making cabinetry, already colored. Just seal and polyurethane...

Just curious if by chance any of the DIY'ers here have worked with it, and what their experience finishing it was like.

Do you mean this stuff? Spectratech Color MDF I haven't heard of it before, but I don't see great advantages to using it. You would still need a top coat of polyurethane or something similar. And, the colors shown are very basic. Now, if the colors included wood colors, complete with grain, I would find that very interesting.

I was thinking of using the black to make something like the ADA stands... Hardly in the final planning stages, but ran across it and thought it might save some effort and time, not having to paint and such...
