Bob and Rick have shown and taught me numerous techniques and wonderful jigs. So I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. anyway thanks for the enjoyment and am looking forward to many more episodes.

This is the same metarial used in cutting boards. If you could find a cutting board the right length and thickness you could improvise. The thinner cutting boards can be used to make the templates, such as the hearts seen on the show. If you're not a simple hick like me, one place to get the material is at http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/pr...e=USPlastic&category_name=72&product_id=10369
And I thought I was the only one cheap enough to use cutting boards.... I have also used a cutting board to make a shelf for in the bathroom, it turned out super.

I also believe it is polyethene. When purchasing it make sure you get it stress reliefed. This way it retains its shape and will not warp.

Try searching the net for it. I got some a couple years back that was scrap pieces at a very reasonable price. Scrap pieces can be quite large and have to be cut down.

I believe the actual name for the plastic is UHMW Polyethylene. That's Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethene. It can be purchased in several thicknesses and sizes in sheets at www.mscdirect.com. They are an industrial supply company that I have bought from for years. They even have Phenolic sheet for base plates and jigs. Their printed catalog weighs about 16 lbs, but they have it available on their website. Hope this information is of some use to all.
