Is plywood good for boxes?
I recommend using 1/4″ plywood for the sides of your boxes, as it will produce lightweight boxes with adequate stability. Don’t use 1/4″ plywood to make boxes much larger than mine, or the boxes will lose their stability. For the bottoms of the boxes, use a thicker plywood for more stability.
What kind of wood is used for boxes?
Hardwoods are the best choice of wood for drawers boxes, with oak being a popular choice at present but Walnut, Maple, Ash, Birch, Beech, Cherry, Tulipwood (Poplar) and Cedar are all great choices.
How thick should a wooden box be?
A much better and more durable wall thickness of at least 1/4″. A 1/4″ thickness does not look good on boxes that are much smaller than 3″x5″.
