Cabinet Materials

Im curious to know if any one has tried poplar wood for a cabinet material instead of mdf? And if so how where the results? I read a review in TAS about the MAGICO creator and his opinion on mdf vs birch ply-wood, which got me thinking of other alternatives. I have only used mdf so far but would like to try a solid wood to see if it makes musical instuments sound better?
Hi Justin,

I have used a poplar plywood for 3 sets of boxes and found it to be nice to work with. It was a maple veneered 1" multi-lam. I think it's more suitable than poplar hardwood as the cabinet is not really supposed to add it's own flavour to the mix.

I would also be concerned about the stability of it.
