Where to buy Plywood

Post by Stroid »

Im looking for a 4x4 sheet of marine or aircraft grade plywood 1/16in thick. Where do you guys buy? Aircraft spruce? Shipping is brutal. Im near Seattle WA. Any ideas on a local company to look into? Thanks!

Stroid: you are ideally located for this. Try Edensaw Lumber in Tacoma. Every report I've heard or seen on this list regarding their products and service have been A-1.

They have two locations that do not both stock everything they have available. Company truck goes back and forth very often and they'll get it to the closer location to you in short order if you want to pick it up yourself.

Oscar,
Thanks! I had already tried them. They said they do not make any plywood thinner then 1/8th in thick.

I ended up just ordering a sheet from aircraft spruce (ouch!). Package just came. Thanks guys
