Maybe. My house was custom built in '94. All wood work was done on site
by an old world craftsman using best material he could find and we could
afford. All hand stained rubbed. Two kids grew up in the house, a cat
and a dog always. Still all is in pretty good shape. No splintering, no
cracking, no rotting any where. The warnth of real wood!
Yeah, MDF is cheaper. Outlast wood ---- get it wet and it will start to
crumble, real wood needs to wetted for months before it rots. MDF will chip
at the corners when it is impacted, wood will only dent. Need to reset a
lock, you find there is no strength to hold anything. I will take real wood
