oh i ment to say the thickness sorry, it is 3/4 inch and 1 inch plywood so it is strong, i just never heard of useing ply wood

i'd spend the extra 5-7 bucks and build your own out of 3/4 mdf.

Don't even *think* about using OSB for an enclosure...nowhere near strong enough for it.

worked just fine back in the 80's...most of the Wayne Harris stuff was built from plywood

Sure, I could see 3/4" furniture grade ply, the stuff that sells for $20-40 a sheet...

but oriented strandboard (OSB) is cheap construction grade stuff, not really meant for enclosures...
