i was thinking of making my own out of wood like the trays they use in real mushroom farms.. as long as put some sealant on them theyll be fine right?

Very BEST & that size is BUS TUBS from any resturant supply..(Smart & Final) or on/line ordered (these are indestructable & PERFECT)..As below:

SMALL Mortor mix tub is about that size (maybe a little bigger) @ Lowes & HomeDepot. They are black, no light shines through & tougher than nails. Large is like 24 X 36 X 8 inches... As below:

If you have the big bucks, or just stumble into some - cheap. 18 gauge Stainless steel pans are the KING. They can be dry heat STERILIZED tinfoil wrapped in your oven. These are out of resturant steam tables:

They measure 20 long X 6 wide X 4 inches deep.

Aluminum foil cooking pans work one time. But, myc eats holes in the bottom, they bend easy with heavy load & that disturbs the substrate (not a good thing). Why not spend a couple more bucks each - for some good tubs that will last you 10 years.
