Woodie construction 2-Jul-2006 At 8:38:26 AM Hatman
ply mostly comes in 17mm or 19mm both are good 17mm is cheaper and if you are worried about strength just put in a couple of pine studs to stop flex. I have used 17mm for my wall & roof section no problems.

good advice from robin on the t-nuts get good quality ones. The crappy furniture making ones such as are avliable at bunnings useless and also rust in no time. Nickel plated nuts last longer.
And make sure you drill a 12mm hole for the nuts as any thing smaller will result in dificulty getting the bolts to seat properly.

another tip is to scout around building sites for form wood. This is used to form concrete and is great quality. It is usualy 19m and BLACK ply wood.bits with only a few defects/holes are often discarded.

my # 1 tip is Dont paint your woodie
