I believe flake board is sold in sheets similar to plywood. I "think" flake board is made of layers of wood flakes that are mixed with some type of glue (?) and pressed together. The surface is fairly smooth but you can see the "flakes". There is also something called chipboard and another called strand board. They can probably all be found at a home improvement store like Lowes or Home Depot or a lumber yard. I think it is cheaper than plywood but I could be wrong. I've worked on the fringes of the construction industry so I know just enough to get me in trouble! LOL

Maybe you can do what we did... I bought an oak table at a garage sale... missing the leaves... HD made a leaf from flake board (once the tablecloth was on, no one knew the difference) ... ours had peg sort of things to join them, so he just drilled a hole...
