I just ran a quick calculation on the UPS web site to ship a 20 pound box,
45x45x8 inches from Los Angeles to NY. $115 by UPS ground, and they did
calculate by dimensional weight (80 pounds!) plus the oversize surcharge.
Dimensional weight (pounds) = L * W * H / 194
Yep, it's expensive to ship big things.
