Latex paint doesnt sand well, no matter how long you wait. Scuff sanding is different since you are only trying to knock off crap that got in the paint. Ridges are a different matter, they are just...

No. That is the price per piece... $145.14... and no, if you want it to look anything remotely like what's on the wall, it is not anything you can walk into any box store and buy.

I dont know what look you are going for, so it's hard to say.

if you want the look and grain of oak and lots of grain, get a 3/4" mdf core oak plywood. Quartersawn veneer will have tighter grains....

Not that would look very good I dont think... if you didnt mind painting it all, you maybe could do it with 3/4" mdf. But the pieces would need to be cut very precisely. A cabinet maker would...
