Recommended products for making a box!

Hi guys, for starters please don’t flame or ill sulk in a corner :(. Right I’m planning on building an arcade stick but I can’t decide what to make the box out of! I was thinking of using MDF and covering in plasstics, or should I just use an arcylic sheet? Anyone know of a UK supplier for this type of thing, or any recommendations? Any help would be much appreciated. Ben
I’m plan

If you checked the stickies, you would have found this great topic by Timoe about different types of wood. If you need any help actually planning and constructing your box, you can head over to
