I'm new to diy and struggling to identify what this panel is made from, see attached images. I thought it was mdf? Has no grain pattern on surface but then the edge does have a grain so not so sure. It seems pretty hard and is about 7mm thick.
One of the images shows a scored rectangle. I'd like to cut this out and wondering what saw would be suitable? I have a pad saw but it's too hard for that.
I then want to screw a metal vent over the hole, bearing in mind it's 7mm thick and there will be a cavity behind how would you fix the vent? Some kind of toggle screw? I bought self drill plasterboard fixings but again I think it's too hard for those.
Oh good I got something right then! I was thinking today to maybe use a wood screw and bolt on the back as a screw alone would only be securing the vent through 7mm of mdf maybe that's plenty for a very light vent.
