    Is that good or bad ? It's hard to tell by reading it.

    It feels a little lighter than 3/4" MDF. I think it has 11 layers ( I'll check tomorrow ), so I figured I may as well use it instead of having to buy something. The edges are also sturdier than MDF -meaning they don't damage as easily.
    The plywood face is good enough for a nice stain or paint pretty muck as is.

    Awesomely frugal.

    Yep. I like the panels.
    It's leftover from table top material we used at work several years ago. There's a layer of Formica-ish material on the other side. I figured it would add some strength and rigidity and form good inside corners to caulk to.

    # braces. Are you happy with that plywood? Is it lighter than MDF?

    I don't mean this as a criticism in any way, but if I had access to a CNC machine, I'd probably do a lot fancier bracing. Like a matrix/honeycomb kinda thing. Cutting all those holes by hand would be a nightmare, but if I could just tell the machine to do it and walk away, I'd probably go nuts with the windowpanes and holes.
