Check the yellow pages under plastics. I think McMaster-Carr also carries
the 1/2" thick sheets.

You can cut it yourself, but the glass will make your tool go dull
instantly.Not only that, but the little glass fibers go everywhere and you
will itch for days. I've been sawing and drilling quite a bit of Extren
(pultruded structural fiberglass) recently. Finally got that diamond grit
edged blade as recommended by the mfr, and it does in fact work better.  If
you can get it already round, you are that much better off.
