kitchen cabinet door in hot humid climates
hi all, i wonder if i can get some advice from kitchen builders working in hot humid places. i'm in Phuket, Thailand (tropical island) and building a European style kitchen with simple, flat panel veneer coated doors then polyurathaned
i know the standard door substrate is usually MDF but i'm worried it may have a problem with humidity. i'm also a bit worried about the weight since the doors are quite large and not sure the screws for the hinges will hold.
i can buy marine ply here (expensive) and standard ply (cheap) and i can get lumber core ply (cheap) but the quality isn't that great, i cut some open and the wood strips don't seem well glued together.
what do you think? i can't get good quality high density particle board here. would you risk MDF, or go ply, if so, what type?
