12mm MDF is what I use and seems to be very sturdy. I built a cabinet with it to house my layout with two shelves for storage underneath. The sections underneath must be at least 2 foot long without bracing and there is no sign of warping after 5 years of use.

A nuisance dust mask is no good for cutting any kind of wood. Use a proper respirator mask. Read the safety label for suitable masks.

If you use extendable track accross the joins you shouldn't need to have exact right angles. Extendable track also solves the problem of having to raise the hinges for a folding board. Think I read about it on this site.
