1. 2x2, 2x3, and 2x4, is all 1.5" thick when you lay it on its side. This fits with the 1.5" rigid foam perfectly. I use 2x2 in the lid to save weight and either 2x3 or 2x4 everywhere else.
2. I believe the plywood is 11/32". Its the stuff that is $15 and change per sheet at Home Depot. I use the same thickness of plywood for the whole box.
I'm happy that my box inspired you, so please ask as many questions as you like.
Many thanks Tom, I will ask you a lot once I start building it.
I read 3 threads you have post about night boxes and they are all very well explained; I will adapt the idea to my space, tortoise size and budget.
