Cabinet Parts

Last night I went to my local Eagle Hardware store and picked up all the parts for the cabinet.  I did not get 1/4" plywood like I originally planned (it was ALOT more expensive than what I was planning on).  Instead I got 1/4" OSD board (kinda like particle board but instead of "sawdust" glued together it is larger wood chips glued together).  It seems fairly rigid, so it should work just fine.

Here is a breakdown of what I got and what I paid for it:

The drawer slide kit I got so I can make a keyboard/mouse tray that slides out.  It will be located directly under the control panel bay.  The drywall screws I got were the brass-coated ones (interior screws).
