Never done it and not 100% sure it'd work, but pretty dam sure it'd work just as well and was gonna say the same thing.

Is 1.5" too thick for you? Just get the normal 3/4 and double it up.

That's nuts.

Considering $40 for two 3/4" sheets is more economical...unless you want to waste $60.

my local loews carries it in smaller sheets. 2'x4' and down. Now I'm gonna have to go look to be sure they don't have large sheets. I have a cabinetmaking shop I go to for milling, they have HDF also.....;)

HDF is like MDF, but better :D

HDF = high density particleboard.

maybe so, I've never built an enclosure with it.

MDF does FINE, especially if you 'paint' the inside with wood glue. Hard @ss ***** then.

I dont want to put the shipping companies out of business, thereby hurting the economy.

same here, its about 28 for .75 and 31 for 1 inch, i see no need for it, like jmac said properly braced 3/4 is better than 1 inch unbraced, maybe for a 7 cube box use 1 inch and brace that too,

the problem with gluing 2 sheets together with wood glue is it has to have alot of pressure on the 2 boards when gluing them together, well it doesnt absolutly need it, but it is much better with a bunch of pressure, i would just lay 2 sheets on top of each other, put 4 clamps on each corner, then cut the peices you need, then after that glue each peice together and apply allot of pressure to the 2, we use a 350 psi press at work to do it, at home i have 2, .75 inch sheets of steel, around 20 inches by 20 inches, get a couple ppl to lay it on top of what i need glued together and still add a couple clamps

3/4 should be more than enough. I made my box out of 1'' MDF and the thing weighs a ton! another thing to consider...
