Default Possible baseboard?

Morning all.

I was just wondering if anyone has used something like this as a baseboard?

Hi Craig, it looks as though the top is 9mm ply, so suitable for baseboard with the only proviso being all sizes being offered are in one piece. What size are you considering, and will you need to transport it? R-

I'm looking at the 8x4 which come with 6 legs and additional bracing. Rather than getting the boarding from them, which comes in 4 pieces I would source the ply myself and half it in 2 sections. My reasoning is that we will move within the next year or two, so it needs to be possible to move it at least once.
