Various shop projects call for sheets of high pressure laminate. Any idea on where to source this? I’ve been calling around with much success.

My local Lowes stopped carrying laminate but the one by my work still carries it in a few colors.

You can also check here for a few sellers… http://www.wilsonart.com/home-owners, just add your zip code.

Thanks Jacob—alas there’s nothing within 50 miles. i see Home Depot has something in white – had hoped for another color, but so it goes. ;)

No cabinet / hardwood suppliers in the Bay Area? I’m sure there has to be a few.

In my area I’ve used a a product called Panolam they have a laminate product made of plywood which is really nice. I’ve used the double sided product for outfeed tables.

You can also make your own. Its actually pretty easy to laminate a sheet of plywood.

I make my own with Formica of Wilsonart. They are much thicker and more durable than Melamine.
Actually Melamine is fine for cabinet shelves, but for workbenches or shop jigs I favor the thicker stuff.

Contact commercial and residential cabinet shops. They can point you in the right direction.

Just google “bay area laminate supplier”. This one popped right up.

http://www.parkmeadproducts.com/

There’s going to be several, as someone has to be supplying all the counter top fabricators in the area. Probably a hundred new counter tops being installed every day in the area.

Parksite or Richelieu would have them but I don’t know if they have branches in California.

I bought mine at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu in Quebec with Formica, but the company is all over the world, so you just have to try their US website and enter your zip code to see where they are selling near you. Theu have a lot of model of kitchen countertops :)

The bay area is a pretty big area. (The original post was on 2-13-2017 )

The Bay Area consists of nine counties (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma) and 101 municipalities.

So the only suggestion I have for that big of area is Go to woodfinders. com and do a search for “formica” and use your Zip code.

I suspect the project is over by now.

Yes I was able to use a sheet of dry erase board from Home Depot.

Have your say...
