I looked up what they had listed on the web site, says the core is poplar. I'd imagine that's pretty soft, eh?

Small world! I get mine at Rings End in Branford....little bit of a hike from Hartford. They have a bunch of locations, but looks like they are all toward NY, and nothing really in the Northern part of the state.

Bill,
do you find a need for 3/4 ply in any of your designs?
In general, is there any practical advantage in using 3/4 instead of 1/2 ply for large enclosures if weight is not a driving factor?

thank you

Only saving the added labor of using braces. That's why manufacturers use bracing sparingly, labor costs more than thicker materials do.
You may find this of interest:
