AFL carries high quality Baltic Birch plywood in several thicknesses. We have been using 5mm (6mm?) material that comes in 5x5' sheets (?)

Home Depot

various locations
http://www.homedepot.com
http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-home-depot-austin-10

1/4" (actually 5mm) Birch plywood costs ~$27 for a 4x8' sheet 1/4" (again, 5mm) lower quality plywood is available that costs ~$11 for a 4x8' sheet

They will cut it down to 18x32" with their panel saw. This will yield 6 18x32" and 3 12x32" pieces.

Lowe's

various locations
http://www.lowes.com/

They also have 5mm plywood that is reportedly of a low quality (but is still usable).
