Default Control boxes

I have read so many thread about people build HERMS system, or even simple temp controllers for fermentation chambers...

My question is, where do you get the perfect sized boxes. Even the ones that people make and cut out their own control panels...the basic box, where do I look to get one. I have looked at HD and Lowe's but don't ever see anything bigger then a large outlet box in the electrical section...of which is to small.

I am looking to build a fermentation chamber, and want to mount my temp controller and a outlet for the fridge and heater element??

They are called project boxes and you can find them in a variety of sizes at RadioShack.

I picked up mine at a electrical supply house. They are made by hoffman. Not cheap but real nice.
