Anyone here use something like this material?

Any good arguments for or against it? I almost bought a bunch of this today but I really wanted to go through the process of making my own for practice as much as anything. I am filling in cabinets with drawers in my garage for hand tools, and all the little stuff that needs a good home.

Seems to be about 2X the cost of a sheet of ply, maybe the best use for production work b/c of time saved. But for home projects, would you add that cost?

IMO you are right re: (time = $$) in a prod shop.

Seems to me its too easy to just rip down the sides and run the grooves.

DIY it!!

Thanks Rob. Seems like for the hobby, it is more fun to make the wood into something than buy the parts. That is why I opted against it.
