Make those

Those are called flats in the fiberglass trade..make a table with formica top ..wax it up good and then layup your panels as needed..I have looked for that sort of thing and no one I know makes panels like that..Just keep adding material until you get the thickness that you need..

its called pultrusion. thats actually the name of the process of making the stuff but thats usually what its refered to. you would need to goto a plastics supply house and buy it or have them order it. here is one online, they have it available in 1/4".
