Let us then make sure that our cabinets or racks are away from the kitchen or the dining room because those areas can create moisture in the room. Now I understand why our cupboards are easily damaged even though they don't get wet.

I have always avoided MDF even though most people consider it to be versatile. Solid wood, on the other hand, seems to contract when subjected to changes in heat and humidity. I prefer Baltic Birch because it seems to withstand temperature swings.

It makes a lot of sense if we use Baltic Birch because those trees grew up in cold places. The low temperature has made the wood strong, so it will be good for furniture.

Is it a good idea to combine MDF with Baltic Birch. Like placing the Baltic ply on top of the MDF plywoods.
