I am a new bee and maybe messing up(nothing new there), but I am building deep boxes out of 3/4 plywood. At $17.00 a sheet, I should get almost 6 boxes, ballpark $3.00 a box. This isn't a chain hardware store,it's local. They also have a good grade paint stick also I used in frames instead of fondation, takes 3 sticks to do 4 frames. They are 300 sticks for $6.00.
