Well yea I found 7' x 8' sheets of cedar at lowes that they say is MDF boards. They are a 1/4 inch thick and are used for closet lining and are $29 a board.

Is this the right wood? Its supposed to be 2/4 inch right? So can I just make the box and double up on the wood by gluing another sheet on each sheet? Basically a box within a box. Do I use the same wood/double up concept for the inner areas? Like where the port walls are or w.e their normally called.

Im needing a new box...currently have a REALLY old pre-fab and it is on its last legs. Its untelling how many leaks it has in it...

Im sure their are probably an answer to each of my questions on these forums. Really wouldnt know what to search it as though...

Biggest lowes had that is MDF is 1/4 inch =\

Only place I can think of that might sell the wood.

Usually sheets come in 4'x8' sheets. And i have never ever heard of cedar mdf.. If you could take a pic of it that would be much easier to tell. But 1/4 inch isnt going to really work. You need at least 1/2 inch and you could double that up. Or just 1 single layer of 3/4 inch. I would just go with the 3/4 it would be cheaper than doing 2 layers of half inch. Hope depot def has 3/4 its about 27$ a sheet here in ohio

There is no such thing as Cedar MDF that i know of. You are looking at the wrong stuff. MDF is MDF, there is no different types. You need atleast 3/4" for a box.

ask someone in the lumber department for "Three Quarter inch MDF" and im sure theyll be glad to point you in the right direction

Fractions are fractions; they all exist. 10/80, 45/23, 213048723/129488754554...they're all numbers. 10/80 and 1/8 are the same value, just different ways of writing it. Just because Craftsman labels their sockets with 1/8 doesn't mean that 10/80 isn't a number...guess what? They both equal .125.

Take your own advice. There is a reason they teach lowest terms in school. It's because there are infinite higher terms that all reduce down to these lower terms. lonnie obviously did not know how to reduce to lowest terms. I pointed it out and said that 2/4" wood doesn't exist. There is a standard for measure in fractions. It's called lowest terms. So... you are an idiot because you're arguing the wrong thing. You picked the fight with me and you're just wrong. For once just shut your mouth.

Obviously, no one is saying that there isn't an infinite amount of terms that equal 1/2.


lonnie obviously did not know how to reduce to lowest terms. I pointed it out and said that 2/4" wood doesn't exist.
So it's your job to come in and make fun of him for saying 2/4", even though it's still equivalent to 1/2"?


There is a standard for measure in fractions. It's called lowest terms.
Yes, when speaking in fractions we generally use them in the most reduced form. That, however, is not to say that the other options "don't exist," as you're trying to say.


So... you are an idiot because you're arguing the wrong thing. You picked the fight with me and you're just wrong. For once just shut your mouth.
I'm arguing with you because you came into this thread trying to be Billy ****** and make fun of the OP, all while saying something as brainless as "2/4 doesn't exist." Your argument has no foundation, and no reason. 1/2=2/4=4/8=5/10. Are you trying to tell me that 5/10 isn't a number? Please don't be that stupid.

Yes it is. Those terms are not used anywhere such as with wood, or ANYTHING else that uses fractions, thus the basis for my statements. Again, you're arguing your interpretation of what I said... not what I said.

How are you NOT being billy bad ***? This is what you do. You always try to bully people because you think you're better than everyone else. I crack a joke on someone for not knowing their fractions and all of a sudden you want to lecture me on why that is wrong and try to focus on your misinterpretation of what I said. That certainly makes you > me doesn't it.

If 2/4 "doesn't exist," as you like to say, I should have no idea what you're talking about. When in reality, I, as well as anyone else, knows that 2/4 is 1/2 is .5. It's all the same. Just because we choose to use the simplest form doesn't mean the others don't exist. It's gotten to the point where I'm obviously not going to break through your super online ego, and you're going to sit there and play retard the whole night, so I just decide to make fun of you. Run along now.

And I don't troll. The fact that you think you're right, and that I'm trolling, just makes this pwnage even more wonderful. I'll sleep good tonight. Thanks brAHHH.

Figured ill just quote the person that quoted the other people to save me some trouble quoting lol

NE WAYS Who cares...im actually taking college pre-trig next semester. WELL its called something else...but thats basically what it is. Anyways yea I know how to reduce...I just simply viewed it as it being a 1/4 of a inch...and doubling up would be 2/4...everyone knew what I was talking about...dont really give a rats ***.

Anyways didnt think about it until I asked a friend how he got the wood for his box. He said he got the wood from 84 Lumber. So yea problem solved. BUT then again I dont think he used 6/8" wood (lol).

OP Forget everything you have seen. You need 3/4" MDF, only. Thats all it is. If its 1/2", dont buy it, if its not MDF, dont buy it.

That's not the argument. I know things aren't labeled 2/4", that's common sense. I'm arguing him saying that 2/4 isn't even a number, it doesn't even exist...which is ludicrous, at best.

It was fun seeing him try to explain how 2/4 doesn't exist, which I guess is hard to do since all he could say is that I won't be able to find 2/4" wood, or hand him an 8/10 socket. Both irrelevant.

1/2 2/4 4/8 1,000,000/2,000,000 or w.e the number is...everyone knows its 1/2 so it doesnt matter. Ill go by 84 Lumber tomorrow and see if they got 3/4 MDF and start coming up with how much wood ill need and how much it will run me.
