Foam Building Boards

Does anyone know of a source for foam building boards?

I'm looking for one about 40"X36" and about 3/4" thick.

TIA,
Matt

Are you sure you need a foam building board?

I've always used a 2" X 4" ceiling tile turned over and found them to work just fine. Ask your local building supply place if the have any with broken corners and it shouldn't cost more than a $1.

Try you local art supply store or wallmart. The art store will have the bigger sizes.

How do you keep the board from developing "warping"? Are you mounting the tile onto another surface ie a sheet of plywood? Thanks

building board

Go to one of the " big box" stores. The building supply dept. will have different tyes of foam boards or perhaps some other suitable material in 4` x 8` sheets . Cut it to whatever size you need. You will need a flat table to lay it on tho.

Yea, glue the tile to pressed wood or something cheap like that. Most home centers even have "handy boards" that are the right size.
