Aircraft grade ply is much heavier than baltic birch and lite ply. It is also not suitable for the entire contstruction.

If he used hobby shop ply, it could be aircraft grade or lite ply, depending on what he gets. In any case, to get enough of that stuff at hobby shop prices for an entire plane, it is likely that he'd need a second mortgage on his house. Very expensive.

Re: Plywood, what's the big diff?

The big thing about anything that is used on man carring aircraft, is everything is traceable to a specification.
In the case of Mil-P-6070 plywood, it must pass very rigerous testing including a 400psi shear test after boiling.

Most plys that you might buy at say Home Depot don't come near the specification requirements of Mil-P-6070.
They usually only boast indoor or outdoor usage, which refers to the glue that was used during manufacturing.

Do a search for the specification and you can read up on it.
As AJC says, , , It's much overkill for our use.
