Myron where did you buy the corrugated plastic from ? Do you think 1/8 ply or alum would work also ? Jim

I found a plastics supplier here in Albuquerque, carries all manner of sheet plastics etc etc. I bought a 4 x 8 sheet. Best suggestion is check your Yellow Pages, or Google it. If I was going for plywood I'd find something really thin, like 1/16th inch. Home Depot often uses this as a cover sheet protecting their expensive veneers.

Is this the stuff? Coroplast?
Coroplast 48 in. x 96 in. x 0.157 in. White Corrugated Plastic Sheet-CP4896S - The Home Depot

It bends in one direction only and if bent a fraction more, it creases.

Wow, that's it. Never knew HD sold it or in colors. Price is fair. Strong, light, cheap, flexible.

I'm surprised that this material bends smoothly over a radius as tight as that of Myron's box corners. It is intended to be used in flat sheets (usually for temporary signs) and like Glenn, I find it just kinks if bent... although I've never tried to smoothly bend it over a frame.

We just had a big cloudburst overhead and I couldn't find the umbrella but I had to run out to the trailer to double-check. So yes, it bends fairly easy if the ribbed seams are horizontal and you use contact cement to get it (slowly) on the first shot.
