    Hi guys,

    I need to source some melamine boards for my tanks cabinet.
    Got quoted R3500 for a wrap around cabinet for a 1m by 600 tank from a LFS I know to do decent cabinets.
    But I am sorry that is a ridiculous price for some wood, screws and handles

    Where can i buy melamine boards from at a decent price?
    Looking for something in white

    Thanks!!

    All builders warehouses will have the normal white sheets. Think they are about R550-R600 for a 2.75m X 1.83m sheet. They will do the cutting and edging for you as well if you want.
