So today at home depot I bought a 4x8 sheet of mdf which usually cost about 20 bucks plus tax. I always get it cut into 4 2x4 peices so it will fit into my car. This all together cost me around 24 bucks. Wellll today the guy cut my wood and I guess he cut off the label, he also didn't mark the wood to show how many cuts he did. So the lady charged me for a 5/8 sheet of mdf and no charge for the cuts :)

just thought id share ;)

HAHA that's some funny stuff... besides they can't do anything if they catch you. Just say you found it like that, but I'd like to see the look on your face when they bust out a tape measure. That dumb blonde cashier will bust out a "PWNED" stamp and slam it on your forehead.

If I'm building a large enclosure, I usually have them cut it into the larger widths (i.e. my dayton's top piece was 38" wide). I get two sheets and have them cut it, and they stack them awkwardly on the blue carts. Free sheet of MDF ftw.

Yeah we do the same trick at the local menards, find the 3/4 MDF 4' by 8' then we take the sticker from plywood or tiny 6$ pieces and find the oldest lady for the checkout line.
