Default Other sources for Plywood

I was wondering where some other builders get their 1/8" Plywood

I know I can get it from the balsa Manufacturere/Distributors, but I am trying to find it more local to me, so I don't have to wait so long for it, or order 10 sheets of 12 x 48 just to get 2 sheets.

I tried calling three of the local hobby shops, and none of them have anything larger than 12 x 24, but they can order it at $25.00 per sheet.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I buy 60" x 60" sheets for production at about $50 a sheet. Same as what you buy at $25 for a 12" x 48" piece.

Try these people:

If you are looking for lite ply, try a finding a cabinet grade plywood supplyer. Ask for 1/8" Italian Poplar. Large sheets of aircraft ply are available from Aircraft Spruce.
