I would suggest using the 3mm okoume plywood ( 1/8"). I used Joubert okoume marine plywood on my boat. ( nice plywood with no voids or patches ) The plywood is much more stable than the mahogany veneer. Also, when you staple it to the battens and frames it won't split like the mahogany veneer will. On tight bends I poured boiling water on it to make more flexible. I liked the joubert plywood so much that I used it for my flooring, seats, and subdecks.
See: "Useful Information and Suppliers" for a list of lumber and plywood suppliers. Also see: "Wood & Plywood Information". Both located in the left-hand column of the Home page.
