Long Story (see Question in next section if not interested :-)
My plan is to install laminated boards, shelves and bars to replace the wire. Naturally HD & Lowes will be happy to sell me $100+ units totaling hundreds and likely thousands of dollars.
Alternatively I could buy the poor quality melamine from them at $26 a board, which I don’t have faith in.
If I had the time, I could buy some nice plywood ($50 / 4×8 sheet) cut, finish apply trim and use that. Cost effective, but killer on time, especially without a shop (Track saws are great, but still need the space to work, and finish)
That would total about 13 8 ft boards 12-14 inches wide. I’d be OK paying more than $25 / 8 ft board if I knew it was going to be decent quality, and a bonus of a nicer look than white melamine.
I live in Fairfax, VA (Northern Virginia) and would like to find a source for these boards. Bonus points if I could get four of them shelf hole drilled.
If I can’t get something local, are there any internet suppliers that would be able to fill this medium small order?
