Plain and simple,

What type of food should I use to build an amp head enclosure?

Would 3/4" hardwood ply be ok?

Or will I need something thicker???

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.

Normally I like to use pizza, but sometimes I go for a nice macaroni head every once in a while...


3/4" Plywood is what's normally used.
Anything thicker is overkill.
You could use 1/2" plywood with supports on the inside, but it's not very asthetically pleasing, it looks to thin from the from perspective.

I used 3/4 inch Baltic Birch plywood to build My 2x12 cabinet build
This size should be fine for a head enclosure.
Baltic Birch plywood costs more than the usual plywood, but not to bad, $40USD for a 5x5 piece.

Haha, blame the iPhone spell correction thing.

An amp head coated in pasta, for all the vegan metallers haha.

So 3/4" ply will be fine then?

Oak Plywood is just as good. It's cheaper where I live(Last time I checked anyways.).
Or if you really want to cheap out and have a heavy head, MDF works. Just works, nothing better. If you are using MDF, be very diligent on pre-drilling everything.

I think that should go in my sig.

In other news, 3/4" hardwood ply is an excellant material for a head.

Hardwood ply it is then.

Hardwood Ply 3/4",
Wood glue,
Screws,
Tolex,
Spray Adhesive,
Pack of macaroni.

Shopping list for head build

Hurrah!
My first sigging!

MickAlmighty,
You could use 1/2" plywood on the front if you have some lying around.

This is just me, but If the Chassis was heavy(Mainly from huge transformers.), I'd put two 1/2" beams in the back touching the sides and an additional two lying on the bottom touching the sides.
Shock-mounting the chassis isn't a bad idea either. It stops most of the vibrations going to the chassis. Essentially just 6 rubber feet shaped things that feel sorta like silicon. My Ampeg has this, but it could be there because it's a 4x10" combo so it's directly touching the speaker cab.
Just a few ideas you can use.
