Default 12" Project Box

Anyone know a good site for larger than usual project boxes? Looking at another project and need bigger than the 7" wide Radio Shack boxes. Anything over 11" would work. Got it all breadboarded out, but the enclosure I was hoping to use is a no go.
Heading to Ace to see if I can come up with something, but appreciate any advice.

Thanks,
Aaron

Digikey has a good selection of project boxes.

Check automation.direct too. I picked up a nice 16x20 box from them. I couldn't find anything local.

Quite a few people, including me, went the eBay route. Might take a week or two to find the size you want but be patient.

Be careful with eBay - more often than not these days, unless it's coming direct from China you can find it cheaper though a non-eBay online reseller.

Thanks all.
Patience isn't my strong suit. I'm already pissed the cigar box isn't gonna work out (not quit long enough.
To clarify, looking for at minimum 11" x 2" x 6". DigiKey looks promising so will look at their huge selection.

Thanks again for the suggestions so far!!
