Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oliver Great product for DIY archery targets...
Odd, I know, but get one 8'x4' sheet of this and cut it into 24"x16" sections at 2" thick, stack them into a wooden frame and compress with either ratchet straps or some sort of threaded rod on either side.
Makes for an excellent 24"x24" faced target capable of handling broadheads for less than half the price of an 18"x18" Block classic target. Even better, when a section starts chunking, just loosen the compression and move a layer up or down.
DIY archery target, works a treat, light weight, lasts a while and saves a fair amount of money. Mine has lasted 3 years of minor to moderate broadhead and field point use from a 50lb recurve before needing to have the layers rotated, totally serious.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GreggTheGrimReaper Halloween Tombstones
This stuff is great to make tombstones and a lot of other props out of for Halloween. With some research (YouTube, HalloweenForum, HauntForum, GarageOfEvil), time, and patience you can learn and practice techniques to make customized realistic looking props and tombstones cheaper and better looking than you can buy from stores.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CatherineJ Great for carving/sculpting
Great for carving - the thickness was a bit challenging but it's no issue if you have the right tools. Stands up very well to stress - including falling 30ft off a building - and is light enough to carry around easily, even if the full sheet is somewhat unwieldy. We used this to reconstruct part of the Parthenon frieze and I will definitely be making use of it in future projects.

Wanted to buy this sheathing as a base for model railroading. Excellent for that. Much denser than white foam. These panels are scored at 1/3 width, and 1/2 width. Only problem is the scoring is strangely jagged and at an angle to the face, and does not break clean, even when the scoring is enlarged with a knife. Would cut well with a circular saw, but I needed to cut it just to get it in my station wagon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeremyR The Stuff to Use for Basements
Although polyiso has slightly better thermal performance, XPS stands up better to moisture. Thus, XPS should be used for below-grade applications such as retrofitting insulation to basement walls (which is what I'm using the product for) due to the moisture contained in the concrete.
I used a fine-toothed hand saw to cut the product to size, which worked well, with a minimum of mess.
I just wish that Home Depot carried this product in the 1.5" thickness, because I'd also like to retrofit it between the studs of a 2x2 wall...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joacchim Used as hydronic floor heating underlayment
I installed 2" thick Owens-Corning foamular sheets around the perimeter of and under my new pole barn prior to installing hydronic heating tube (PEX). I bought them in 4x8' sheets and they were pre-scored so they could be easily broken into 16" or 24" widths. They were also easy to cut to custom widths using a drywall knife - you only have to score them about 1/2" deep and they break easily along the score line. I also used my sabre saw to cut them using a knife-type blade. The material is light and easy to work with. My only beef would be the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nivekt Works like a charm
I used this to make a 3' x 2' insulated box inside a closet to use as a fermentation chiller when fermenting beer. This box combined with 1 gallon of frozen water will hold at 60 degrees F for almost 24 hours. This is with an outside ambient temp of 78 degrees. The foam is light weight and easy to work with.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteamPunket Easy to construct back drops
I used these panels to make sets for a local con. The textures lightness and strength was perfect. I added wing panels that stood out at a 45' angel. Project was assembled at site with twelve inch 1 by 1 (also from home depo. The packs were very on expensive) using a hot glue gun. It also was easy to transport and break down.
