Chipboard - sheet material made by hot pressing of shavings.
MDF - wood fiber board, treated with steam, made from wood cubes pressed under high pressure.

Models from veneered MDF have a denser structure, which means they have a stronger connection with fittings, they emit less substances hazardous to the body.
The most popular are black models, white, and wenge colors.
