Happy new year everyone! I’m new to woodworking so I wanted to get some advice from some more experienced people…

I want to make a couple torsion boxes, but my only issue is that they need to be 1 1/2” thick. that’s obviously not much. I ran across this: http://www.utrechtart.com/item/?itemno=1016040&urx=1

does anyone have any experience with this stuff? the description says that it can support someone standing on it, which is way overkill for my purposes. what I DO want to do is skin it with some nice figured maple and mahogany edges.

any advice would be appreciated!

The honeycomb is what’s used in hollow core doors. You are making it too complicated. Just use a hollow core door. Cheap, available every where and pretty much done.
