Wood will work fine for a slip seat box, it is not a resonant as metal (won't rattle as much). Be careful not to make it too heavy, the radio equipment will get heavy faster than you think. Also, make some provision to strap it down, if an accident doesn't kill you the radio box might.
"What materials should I use" I would say use what ever material you are comfortable working with. Take a look at some of the commercial units, at $100 or so it, the material, hinges, handles, and hasps can add up to almost or more. Then you still have to put it together. Most of the commercial units have the dimensions listed. I don't mean to discourage you, the satisfaction of building one yourself is worth a lot.
