Is 3/4 inch to thin to make furniture out of? Answered

I am looking of making a entertainment stand and a desk.  I went to a speciality wood shop and bought 3/4 inch red oak plywood.  I am having second thoughts thinking I probably should of gotten the 1 inch.

Do you think I will be ok with the 3/4?



3/4 ply should be fine - do you want elephants dancing on it for your entertainment?!


It depends on what you are doing with it, but 3/4 sounds fine to me.

Yes, I made some furniture out of 3/4 inch pine (stools, and a mantelpiece) and it is quite durable, while oak is even harder than pine.
