Not exactly a woodworking question, but sort of related. I've been building a new workbench, with an MDF top. I suddenly find my hands showing brown stains. Could it be the MDF? I understand it has formaldehyde in it. The only thing I did out of the ordinary before the stains appeared was to lean against the top for awhile, as I read a magazine article. A short while later I noticed the stains.
No announcement yet.
