oak is nice if it is 12 ply. birch is my 1st choice just because it is 8$ less a sheet than oak.

I'd go with birch as well just because I imagine its lighter. I've used all 3 types of wood mentioned for boxes and between the two plywoods I could not tell a difference in strength between them. Both are stronger than MDF for sure. Birch has a little smoother face than the oak too.

I just finished a new box in Oak ply. I have made many in Birch ply.

Oak is the same price, and ply as the birch here. IMO the Oak is a little nicer looking but has almost all the same properties.

Here is the oak finished off:
