I’m planning to build an office suite and use cherry high pressure laminate. Here is a link to sorta what I’m building.

I need to find the high pressure laminate to finish it with??? Anyone know where I can get this stuff and how much a 4×8 sheet costs?

Thanks.

I have used Wilsonart laminate in several projects. If you go to their website you can look under different sections and one I believe is for homeowners and you can find a link to distributors by your zipcode. They have several Cherry types, one is rather nice as it is a replica of older/aged Cherry. I have not special ordered as I have found the more common laminate styles like oak replicas near my home at Menards and and a local lumber yard that has worked for me, and it has run roughly 40.00 a sheet. You might try this number as it is Wilsonart International and they should be able to give you some direction how to locate goods in your area and current price ranges (248-960-3388).
Good luck on your project.

I live in Billings, MT and every lumberyard distributes laminate.

There is Wilsonart, Formica, and Avonite. These are the most popular names in laminate.

Laminate not only comes in 4×8 but in 4×12, 5×10 and a few other sizes. You may find that the purchase of these other sizes allows you to minimize waste.
