6MM Wood for 3D printer Frame? Answered

Hey everyone. 

I have a laser cutter.  I want to use it to build a frame for the Prusa i3 3D printer.  However, I was looking on the wiki it says that the wood (or acrylic) needs to be 6MM in depth.  Does anyone know where I can buy a full sheet (meaning 4'x8') of 6MM plywood?

Has anyone done this before?

You should be able to buy 6mm plywood from any DIY store or Timber yard. i would reccomend you pay the extra for Birch ply as this will give you the best finish.
