1/8 --3/16

At home depot I grabbed a sheet of hardboard off the shelf marked 3/16 and had them cut it into 3 pieces. At the register I realized (too late) it was actually 1/8". I need it for 18"x24" and 24"x36" paintings and have always used 3/16.
I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and use it, or should I glue two pieces together?

Cradle them.....easy.

At the same home Depot look for hobby boards. Nice narrow boards in pine or poplar that you can glue to make your cradle.

Thanks D. I.cradle and/or float frame when I show my work but keep it as a panel for storage to take less room. So don't know how a 1/8 panel would hold up in 24x36 size in terms of bowing - I do paint all sides and the 3/16 does pretty good. 1/8 ??

Oh, that is pretty big, so you may have to consider bowing. You could make a cross brace thru the middle with your cradle?
The other option might be to cut this one up into nice "study" size pieces.
