I've read the other responses and most of your questions were answered quite well by Chris. He knows his stuff.

A technique I've used to have a furniture grade cabinet without the expense of 3/4" furniture grade plywood is as follows. Often my home improvement center will have luan plywood in 1/2" thickness that has nice grain and color. I also get 1/4" oak ply or birch, this I use for the outer shell. I build my cabinet using the luan and make allowances in the face frames to accomadate the thickness of the 1/4" plywood so it hides the edges. I then can skin the outside with the oak and have an interior that's a lot less expenxive but attractive and safe nonetheless at a fraction of what the furniture grade plywoods or solid woods cost.

Of course this is easy for me as I was a carpenter for most of my life and I have tools out the wazoo that make my life simple when doing the above.
