Default What wood to use....

I'm getting ready to build my new box, I have all my plans ready and not I'm just trying to source some wood that isn't MDF or HD grade crap. I cannot find arauco cabinet pine either.

Unfortunately there is not a lumber yard within 100 miles that carries or is willing to order Baltic birch in any bigger than a 5 x 5 sheet. Which is what I really wanted to use, there is a place close that has B2 grade cabinet birch. Which from what I have gather is nearly void free. I feel would work nice and is like $48 a sheet, But I need some opinions? Would you use it? What should expect with it?

Next I found a marine grade plywood that is AB grade and is complete void free, he said it is composed of birch, maple, pine. Not sure in what order, but I do no that there is not a veneer on it. Which is fine as I'm going to be carpeting the box. It is $90 a sheet, which is still ok with me. I budgeted about $100 for the wood, and I only need one sheet of 4 x 8.

Which would you use? Price aside which would result in a better box?

Can't buy it near me. I search for 100 miles to find it, both home depot's say that can't even order it.

My father is the merchandising manager for the one store. His system will NOT let him order it.

I've had two stores order it in the last 2 years. One in Jersey and one in Florida. Both times I had to call the big folks but it got done. I wouldn't give up do easily

I have tried three times already, It has something to do with the sawmill that is in the area. Don't know what but I know that they make another brand of cabinet pine.

Basically what happens when he does try to order it, it the order will go through and then he gets an email stating that product is not validated for shipment to his location. Same thing happens at both stores. Neither of the lowes that I called can order it either. Even though they carry it as a company.

Nope. They don't sell on site. Not for just one sheet. He said buy a bundle and you can come pick it up. They were straight ****ing rude. I found the phone number of the owner, in the phone book. I called him and told him, I understand that you can't sell one sheet. but you don't have to be rude as hell about it. I also asked him that you have a crux on the area for this cabinet pine but I can't your brand anywhere around here? He said nope closest dealer is in PA. I live in ohio.

So at this point. It is not an option.
