    The answer is yes but that item you linked is probably not the best. If HD is easy for you to shop at I would first suggest looking at their pre-cut smaller pieces. In these you might find a piece of better material, like Baltic (all solid woods).
    Is it to be painted or are you looking to show the wood grain? If painted you could use hardboard as well and bevel the edges. If the wood is to be exposed you'll probably need to o binding as well to cover the edge grain of the ply.
    Specialty wood shops will have both the thin Baltic birch and maybe some 1/4" solid wood as well.

    Good luck,
    Rex
