Default Good Plywood from Lowes

Being I only have a Lowes within reasonable distant from me, what is some good plywood for box building that I can use in substitute to MDF? I don't mind using MDF but I hate the dust it creates. Can someone get on Lowes' website and point me in the right direction? Thanks.

How do you have 3500 posts and NOT know this answer?

MDF or Birch, they will have Birch. Only 5-7ply but it will be fine.

I'm not sure if Lowes has it but I just built a box out of Arauco pine plywood and it turned out great. I bought it at Home Depot, if Lowes has it give it a shot, it's $28.97 a sheet here in KY.

I have always used MDF and nothing else. I have been wanting to venture into plywood for boxes but never knew what makes certain plywoods good. I know birch is the way to go but I'm not spending 75 bucks a sheet for what Lowes wants.

you don't have to use birch, that "birch" is only a veneer anyway. The ply's are pine. I've been using red oak for mine.
