My local hardwood supplier does not offer birch plywood. They either offer maple ply or apple ply (which I think is a equiv to birch ply) there is another lumber supplier semi local, but they are 1 hour one way and only open week days. It shouldn't be more than a couple sheets so I will just suck it up and go with whatever is cheaper.

I am going to start sketching out some designs / drawings and doing cabinet building research. I think I will forgo the drawers and just do doors, with pull outs.
