Generally, I am a plywood person but have made solid wood furniture at customers requests. Both types of construction have their benefits and draw-backs. If you go plywood, find a reputable, non-box store exotic hardwoods supplier for your furniture grade plywood. If all you have is Home Depot, Lowes and other big box stores, I wish you luck. I usually had to drive an hour or so each way to a REAL hardwood lumber yard. It is worth the trip.
