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

    Re: plywood box

    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...
