We are planning on doing decorative molding and wood working in our house and we visited the local lumber store. They have several molding material and it was hard to choose. Obviously wood molding is expensive and MDF is cheaper but we are not able to decide which way to go to get the best bang for the buck. We saw something like Fingered Primed wood, not sure if it is real wood. Should we shop online or go to a store and what is the best material to go for?
