    Home Depot In Sioux City sells quarter sheets of the dark brown MDF for about $10.38 ea. If you like the more yellow colored MDF, you have to buy the whole 4 x 8 sheet, then get it cut and costs a little bit more???

      Inflation is well on the rise.
      Funny how that seems to happen. Gas prices fluctuate with oil prices, but everything else is made of oil in one way or another - why no fluctuations?

      Hopefully when it cools off, the prices inch down again.

      As it is, it isn't a whole lot more to buy MDF core oak veneered plywood.
      Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

        It is almost always cheaper to go to Home Depot and buy a 4x8 sheet for $30 and have them do 2 free cuts to get 4 2x4 sheets. Thats $7.50/2x4 sheet. It was $5/2x4 sheet when a full sheet was $20. Home Depot has always offered 2 free cuts on panels.

          If you have any commercial cabinet shops in town, go by and talk to the manager or shop foreman. They often have usable scraps they will give you free, especially if you tell them what you are building. Sometimes they save scraps for a while, then send them to the dump in a load. Find out when the dump trip is scheduled, and offer to reduce the load going to the dump. Free material is a good thing, reducing landfill activity is a good thing as well.
