Not sure if this is going to be another way to get a hard-earned tax write-off, but I’ve decided to sell my plywood pouches online for a while, at least.

Check out the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003M75ISM

...and stay tuned, maybe my experience will help others decide if this is a worthwhile step in selling your products online.

My fingers are crossed!

good luck. I clicked the link and that you’ve got a useful product. I live in Seattle and play the weather game when making material runs. I just might have to get one.

I think you should re write the description though. Not that I’m anti green, what I’m concerned about isn’t throwing a piece of plastic away—it’s throwing my material away!! Anyone spending $60 will expect it to be re-usable.

I think you should take the protect your investments angle (good sheets of ply cost more than your bag), and also show how your product can “unchain” you from the weather—time is money and waiting for the rain to stop SUCKS. And so does renting box trucks or paying for delivery.

More questions, it says easy to load, but how easy? What makes it easy? Does it have sewn in magnets like a shower curtain to hold it in place? Does it have sewn in pockets for fiberglass rods like a tent to hold it’s shape? Or do I need two people, one on each corner to hold it open while I slide the sheets in?

And how many is a few sheets? 3? 6? I would need know before I bought. I see the dimensions say 6” for the height. That would be 8 sheets maxed out, but only if that is inside dimension, not out.

I don’t want to sound overly critical, but these are questions I have since I’m really considering buying one.

Very good questions… I guess the first thing to do would be to have a look at the video review Consultingwoodworker.com did one and put it on YouTube. Amazon wouldn’t let me put the link in the ad, but here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCI6CPZnPPs To be honest, I’ve never put more than 6 sheets (3/4”) in, but there was still room. I’m going to go to a local building supply dealer (who has bought several different styles) to see how many I can stuff in. What I’ve done to hold it open, when I’m alone, is use a couple of 8” dowels to hold it open. They just fall over when the first sheet is going in and the rest are a breeze. Most of the time, I’m picking sheets up at a building supply dealer and there’s always a hand or two around to help. If someone wanted to hold, say, a dozen sheets, we can make it slightly “higher” for only a couple dollars more. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
Thanks for your interest.
