The material you will want for your robot will depend on what robot you are building.

For their first robot, people generally use wood, plastic,aluminium...
I would suggest you go for plywood. It is easy to get, easy to work with and cheap. You need very few tools to build something using it. A saw, a file and a drill will be more than enough for most simple jobs.

depends very much on what you are making, the size, the required weigh, the money you have with you and on..

We all can help you more if you tell us something about the robot you are planning to make.

Aluminium sections which is used for making windows, doors along with with ply-wood will be the best option as per me.
because you need one cutter, scale and many cheaper screws for making chasis which will be enough rigid to serve your most of the robotics related needs
