mePed structure material

I am having trouble locating 1/8" board material to make the mePed body parts. I have made a few from plywood which can be difficult because plywood is not always flat. I have made 1 from MDF from some scraps I found, and don't remember from where I got it. Can someone suggest where I might find 1/8" MDF or some other better material?

We buy our MDF at a local lumber yard. Home Depot and Lowes usually carry some MDF as well. Online, sells 1/8" MDF which is very close in size to 3mm. You could also cut the body out of 3mm Acrylic or 3D print the parts.

If you're unable to track down a suitable place, we also sell just the mePed wood kits on ... d-kit.html

If you need anything else, please let us know.

Thank you Scott. I have tried the major hardware stores here in Denver but 1/8" is too small for them. I will try


Oh, by the way I just want to say I enjoyed meeting you at the Denver Maker Faire last month.
