In the link you posted, he uses 1.5" ply. In your case you may have trouble with the 3/4" ply and the screws bulging the wood when you go to fasten it together, particularly the top being joined to the verticals, since you have less wood thickness. That's really the only thing I could see being a problem.
That's true, i had not thought about the the screws going in to 3/4 vs 1.5".
