Baltic Birch plywood may be better as it cuts cleanly (as long as you use a downcut bit), is hard, has 2x as many plies as ordinary plywood (i.e. is strong) and looks beautiful. Home Depot and Lowes do not carry Baltic Birch plywood. It may say Birch, but it is not Baltic Birch, or even if it says Baltic Birch, it will not be. True Baltic Birch plywood comes in 5'x5' sheets.
