What is a good material to use for bleeder board?

From Shopbot Wiki

Vacuum Bleeder board materials:

The most common bleeder board material is Trupan, a sheet material made in Chile from Pine. It is available in Standard, Light, and UltraLight versions. Most people prefer the Ultralight but some feel it is too porous. All genuine Truman has the name Trupan stenciled on the edge of each sheet. Tafisa is another material that works for bleeder boards.

The majority of users surface the outside faces to increase the porosity and air flow, but the benefit may not be worth the trouble for some.
