Clarification request

> Side and Back frame: Hand-cut plywood 2x(762x9 mm baltic birch).

Looking at the photos, I'm guessing that's supposed to be 762x90 ?

I would really like clarification on this as I'm about to cut! There looks to be two different widths.

I don't think the width of these plywood side panels is critical. They form an "L", the narrower one seems to be approx. 130~150mm wide and the other one seems to be approx. 180~200mm wide. As for the plywood thickness, my best guess is approx. 9~10mm, so the 9mm possibly refers to thickness and not width (in the OpenSCAD files the top and bottom plywood panels are 9mm thick). The critical part here imho is that these plywood panels should not be warped in any way. And (again an educated guess) you want plywood and not MDF to save on weight while still maintaining a certain rigidity.
