Note on Foam Boards:

1/2" thickness with a sturdy outer surface is SUPAH sturdy but a bit pricey.  1/5" and/or 3/16" thick should still work just fine.
It's actually more about the outer surface than the thickness. The outer surface of the Guildcraft kind (the ones I used in the video) are pretty thin and flimsy, but the outer surface of the ones listed in the supplies section from Amazon are much sturdier which is helpful!
