Only problem is they have limited stock and are searching for an alternative. This is a Home Building Centre that caters heavily to the trades and serious hobby market.

My wife went to an estate sale today and saw some 5x5 plywood (pretty cool, eh? She knows I use 5x5). So, I went over and checked it out. About 25 sheets. Original price was $30 each. Today was 25% off....tomorrow will be 50% off.

Trying to decide whether I want to pick up BB at $15 a sheet and how many. They've probably been in that workshop for over 10 years. Still flat....edges are a little banged up.

Just gotta' figure out if I have space to get a few.......and if there are any left by the time I get there.

For $15 a sheet I'd by them all, keep what I wanted, and sell the rest for $50 each.

Pick them up Bruce. You've got nearby people who might want to but some from you.

Tempting, but with my bad back and not having a place to store that many of 'em.....I'll probably just grab 3 or 4. If I get over there at all.

It's definitely a gold mine of BB.

You forget how big Texas is....I think there's only one Texas builder within 4 hours of me. :cowboy:

But, if I had a place to store 'em, I'd buy 'em all.
