Yesterday evening my neighbor and I went to the blue borg to pick up a few things--masonite (yeah, I know hardboard) being one of the most important. We couldn't find it so I asked a young employee for assistance. He had no idea what I was talking about and asked another associate. This man was 40ish and didn't know what I wanted. He called the supervisor who told him to show me the Hardy backer board--tell him it's the same thing only better and a little more expensive. To me, Hardy board is a little extreme for making templates for Adirondack chairs.
