MDF shapes

DIY shapes for your own projects

Jali produces a wide range of cost-effective simple shapes that are ideal for DIY projects around the home in a choice of 6mm, 18mm or 30mm thick MDF. Thicker shapes are ideal for tabletops or workbenches, whereas 6mm thick shapes can be used as cutting templates for DIY jobs.

You can make just about any shape by changing the sizes, the corners, sides and adding holes inside the shape itself - so a basic rectangle can be turned into a triangle by removing a corner, or even a circle by rounding off all four corners.

There are hundreds of things you can do with these, all made at the exact size you need: design simple shelves with rounded corners, a bespoke desktop for PCs (with holes and/or slots for cables), and even speaker cabinet fronts for your home or car.

The shapes here are just a few examples - if you don't find exactly what you need then you can customise any one to your exact requirements.

Available options

Adjustable overall size (length and width);

Available in 6mm, 18mm or 30mm thick MDF;

Corners: each corner can be sharp, curved (concave or convex), cutout (square or rectangular) or chamfered (diagonal) to any measurement;

Edges: any number of rectangular cutouts along any of the four edges;

Circular or rectangular cutouts, at any size and positioned anywhere within the shape;

How to make basic shapes

The shapes are all based on a rectangle. However, you can produce different shapes as follows:

  • Circles: Make a square with the width and height equal to the diameter across the circle you want. Then make all four corners rounded, with the radius of each corner equal to half the side length of the square.

  • Triangles: Start with a rectangle, and apply a chamfer to the top-right corner (to make a right-angled triangle) or to both top corners (for an isosceles triangle).

  • L-shape:: With a rectangle, make a square or rectangular cutout in one corner. Vary the dimensions of the cutout to adjust the width and height of the legs of the L.

Almost anything is possible by starting with a basic shape and adding more and more details. Possible projects are: simple shelves, table-tops, racking for tools in a shed, and even a replacement instrument panel for a light aircraft.
