      I know "MDF desky" - maybe "embossed hardboards". They are water resistant and for that reason they are also used in bathrooms. Usually they are used as front doors of any furniture - for kitchen, bathroom, living room. They are used as front doors because the boards are quite hard, resistant and molded and for that reason nice. They can have any colour. I do not know "MDS desky", probably something similar if it is not a mistake - no hints contrary to "MDF desky".
      Surely I would not use "files" but "boards" - "laminated boards", maybe "working(?) boards". Pracovni desky are used in kitchen as the area in which the kitchen sink is embedded and some of them are very resistant to cutting, scoring, etc. - that is the reason they are named "pracovni". And they are thicker than laminated boards and MDF boards (MDF board are quite thin) - 30mm.

      I hope this helps you.

      Hap-hap-happity New Year, folks!

      I've got a question about different types of "desky".

      "Pracovni desky" - These seem to be counter tops or work surfaces,
      right?

      "MDS-desky" - I can't find this anywhere. I can't even find MDS.

      When "desky" are mentioned among various wood-related products for
      shipping, would you call them "boards" or "panels"? In the US,
      sometimes we even call panels OR boards in that situation.

      I've got a translation to proofread in which the translator keeps
      referring to "desky" as "files". So "lamino desky" is rendered as
      "laminated files", and "pracovni desky" he has as "work files". This
      sounds impossible to me, especially considering that these things are
      being lumped together with flooring products.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Jamie
