Hi Sasquatch,

I've used 3.6mm ply in box construction,mainly on the cat and dog bowl resonators.Your mahogany should give great results,the solid timber boxes I've built have always been better acoustically.Here are a couple of examples,one is american walnut(sourced from a model shop) with a cedar front.The other is lauan (salvaged from an old shelf) with a spruce front.Details of construction are among my photo's
