Is the Arauco ok to use? They looked pretty much the same. The only differences that I saw were the price, and the Arauco seemed a little bit heavier. Help me on this? Thanks guys

Aruco is fine to use, very similar properties to baltic birch.

I'd stay away from 18mm and 23/32" so that you don't end up with little over-hangs and such after a couple of pieces are put together.
