When scratch-building bulkheads, better to use plywood or regular wood?

Recommended Posts

I'm about to start a scratch-building plank on bulkhead project, and I was wondering if it would be better to use milled wood or plywood. I'm concerned both about warping, and about exactness of the thickness of the wood I end up using. Also, what about outgassing or warping of plywood?

How does this apply to solid wood? And isn't all plywood laid with alternating directions of grain? That's what gives plywood its strength, no? In any case I was just thinking of getting 3mm Micro Lite plywood, I've bought some of their thinner plywood and it looks like high quality stuff...
