Custom Snake Condo

So I've drawn up some awesome plans for a snake condo. It will be made out of birch wood for the safety of the snakes. I plan on coating the entire unit in this non toxic epoxy called Pond Armor. So here is my question...... If I plan to coat the unit entirely with Pond Armor, don't you think I'd be able to use pine plywood instead of birch?

The reason I ask this question, I'd like to build two of these units and for the price I'll pay to build one with birch I could build two with pine. Any input will be greatly appreciated. Also, if you're unfamiliar with Pond Armor I have a link attached. TIA.....

I use to build my enclosures out of laminated pine for my burmese pythons years ago. As long as they are sealed they are completely fine to use. Only downside is pine is fairly soft so can be damaged a little easier than hard wood.

Hello Charles

TheOriginal Black Waterproof Sealantis deemed 'fish safe', and has been used by at least one reptile store, as well as being used in fish ponds.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Have a great day!
Trevor

It did look a lot like the much more expensive baltic birch ply I used before, ... It if is southern yellow pine plywood, it is plenty strong. .... But if there is any concern that the chosen material is not strong enough, I'd rather take ...
