    Do a google serach. You can buy it in large or small quanities. Make sure it's kiln dried.

    You may also want to look on ebay. I've seen it there for cheap in the past.

    I bought mine from rockler too. Cut to order, fast shipping, etc. I had a good experience and would recommend them. -Matt

    Hmmm, glad I came back and saw this post; I might have to check them out. I am looking at making some stackable trays for my overflow lunchbox coolerdor. I want to have a tray in the bottom for the beads, that trays above that, all connected to a handle so I can easily remove the whole thing to more easily maintain the beads, and rotate stock. :)

    And just as an aside, but related; how effective is using old cigar boxes as liners until I make my trays? I would assume that the boxes (C.com house blend boxes and a 5 Vegas) are just spanish cedar laminates, and certainly not solid.

    go to cigar shops and see if they have empty boxes. most will sell them to you for a buck. thats plenty of wood for cheap. you will have to spend some time taking the lables off though.

    Good idea, James...I'll look into that route as well. :D
