I would suggest leaving the big box stores alone. Find you a cabinet shop in your area and ask where they buy their lumber and plywood from.
Most wholesale vendors also sell retail to woodworkers. Sometimes you can get much better deals through a local vendor than trying to order online and you can see what you’re buying. Pick it up yourself and forget the shipping charges,
I saw an online vendor selling soft maple for over $4.00 a brd ft. I’ve never paid over $2.00 a brd foot for the best soft maple on the market. I also pay about the same price for beautiful curly maple.
Last year I bought curly maple and common cherry for $1.00 a brd ft because my vendor had a huge stock of it.
Monday I have to order some 10 inch and wider popular…$1.48 a brd ft.
