These started to pop up a lot the last few years. Several ways to do it, I’ve seen them one single 1/4” thick piece of wood, glued to plastic, etc. If it were me I’d get 3-4 or 5 (depending on how thin they are) veneered cut outs and glue them up, alternating the grain like plywood. Also use washers on both sides of the wood when screwing in to help from splitting/breaking.
