I was looking at that earlier Brian. A good idea but I’m not sure I like its appearance. Looks a bit naff.

they look flimsy, and expensive. A table tennis table, is much simpler, i have found, and a lot cheaper.

Wonder why they have an MDF option? MDF quickly distorts when it gets damp. Seems odd to offer both MDF and plywood with little difference in price.

MDF is the budget option but heavier. These look similar to the ones I bought earlier this year. Not sure what all the small square holes round the bottom are for though.

Two adjustable feet £15!!! I bought a box of twelve - cost me £4 on ebay - it was a few years ago.

I expect when it is all glued and screwed together it's pretty solid. Terry confirmed his earlier boards were MDF - White Rose Baseboards use to have a promotional video which showed their boards being made - it was all MDF.

My baseboards from Whiterose are ply Barry, not MDF. You can still see athe promotional video on their web site.

It was an old White Rose promo video Terry. I appreciate you now have ply. I thought you mentioned that sometime back (years?) the boards you had then were MDF. Sorry for the confusion. Barry
