Default Source for Free Styrofoam sheets

I just want to share this with everyone. I found that my local Lowe's has these sheets of Styrofoam in the receiving area. They come as shipping protection for special order doors. They very in sizes a little but most are 6ft tall 30 to 36 in wide and 1in to 3/4 in thick. They are very dense for beaded foam and I've had no trouble carving on them. Ask someone in millwork dept or receiving to get them when they are done using them.

Free is always a plus for a prop builder. Thanks for sharing!

Great tip Joe! I'll have to go to my local store and see if they have any. The real challenge at my Lowes is finding someone that will actually look and see if they have any...most of the employees want to click their walkie-talkie and if the sheet doesn't come flying down from the ceiling into their hands, they will tell me, "nope, don't have any".
