So I've decided I'm going to buy a head and build a cab (gonna make a 4x12), but I don't know what wood to use. The rest of the stuff's going to be easy, but can someone give me some recommendations?
cheapest would be plywood.

Yes, but what's the best price/quality ratio wood?
well any cheap woods, the wood doesnt change the tone on cabs.

^ Changing the tone in the same way that a guitar's body wood would? Or would it have something to do with structure and stability?

birch plywood or poplar plywood is what i would use to build a cab. A few companies that i know of are starting to use poplar, and i would recommend poplar over birch.
the type of wood, not so much, but the thickness of hte wood, and the strucutre of the cab can change tone by a lot.

It seems that you won't want resonance with the cab. You know, with the vibrating on the floor, rattling the room. Wouldn't it be ideal to have only the speaker vibrating?
