    What would you build cupboards and stuff out of, it seems to be recommended to use Vohringer ply, but what's the difference between this and regular ply? Would it be strong enough to build the bed platform with?

    Vohringer ply, is available in many different colours and finishes, it just happens to be a favorite with converters I have used ordinary ply with a nice finish on one side and varnished it
    It all depend on budget and desires, for a bed base any ply would do you dont really need a finish as such but you dont want shuttering ply either:Doh:

    Having said that My RVs bed base is only one grade up from shuttering

    So it's just the finishing that it's bought for? Marine ply is water ressistant though and would be a better idea maybe?
