    "$50.00 a unit." Lumber and plywood come in units. It's the big stack not a single.

    Well, you said 2 units of 5'x9' sheets. I don't know how big a unit is. I'm assuming one unit = one sheet.

    BTW 1/2" MDF flexes like MAD. I have a dual chambered enclosure I built for my subs, .75 cuft / sub, made out of 1/2" MDF. It definitely has some nice flex on it.

    Re: Mdf Hookup

    How many sheets = a unit?

    who cares if its 1/2" if you get it cheap enough that you could tripple up everywhere and still pay less than 3/8" costs

    Re: Mdf Hookup

    Why I would build boxes out of 1/2 inch is because of the price. That cheap I'll just double them up to 1 inch. 1 inch is plenty strong.

    I think a unit has about 50 sheets iirc so for 1 dollar a sheet I think it's a good score.

    Rashaddd.
    It's from a place that gets the mdf as cover sheets, Protecting other shipments. So they don't have it as inventory and are tired of storing it.
    Some of the corners have dings etc. But it is 5 feet by 9 so it's still good even if I have to nip a little here and there.
