Default 9mm pine

About to build a fiddle yard and have a 5 by 2 piece of 18mm pine (sorry, not 9mm) kept from an Ikea desk. Anyone used such a material or shall I stick with trad ply? Thank you.

(Disclaimer - other stack it high stores are available to use).

Im guessing you mean 5ft x 2ft, at 18mm its probably a bit heavier than is needed but that's just an issue for moving it around, and given its from ikea I would assume that it is reasonably stabilized so that it wont warp, cup or twist any more than is tolerable which is the common downside of real timber
