An opportunity for Makerspace and its Members has developed through @n0pe association with Savona Specialty Plywood.
We have been offered a lift of 50 sheets of the highest quality 19mm form-ply for $2500, including tax, . That is about $50/sheet, which is more than 1/2 price. This is the very highest quality of industrial cabinet grade plywood, featuring veneer from africa and a manufacturing process that has it fitting new stadiums and hotels from Ontario to Saudi Arabia.
My goal is to get the Makerspace at least 20 sheets for the install of the kiln room, the finishing of the classroom, additional shelving for the @Craftorium and whatever else we want.
To this and not break the bank, I need to fundraise by offering Members sheets of this wonderful material at $60/sheet - for every 5 sheets to members at that price, the Makerspace gets one ‘for free’.
I am willing to take three sheets at $60. I have others who are into it, too, and will begin buffing this thread with that list.
Before I do, I want to test the waters in terms of Members appetite for this. I am in a bit of a pinch because the person who initially committed to take 20 sheets has backed out and I need to adapt.
So yeah - give a shout and let me know if you want to reserve sheets - the money will need to be upfront and given to our Treasurer within the next 10 days.
