The picture link is not working …

My only experience with marine plywood is in building a kayak from Chesapeake Kayaks. They used a marine plywood called okume – a type of mahogany I believe. The only thing I remember is that it has no voids – a bad thing if you are using it as a boat hull. I’m not sure that a cabinet needs marine plywood, but it won’t hurt.

Are you sure you need 3/4” material? I’m not sure how big the cabinet is, but a large cabinet would be lighter while a small cabinet could benefit from a little more space by using 1/2” (or maybe 3/8” ?)
