Welcome to LJ!

FYI, the link didn’t work for me, so I’ll repaste it here:

Are you planning on painting it? couldn’t quite tell from your post. If that’s the case, you might want to skip the oak/birch plywood and switch to a cheaper material, but still paint-grade. I’ve not had an issue with L/HD plywood before and have used it on several projects. With a decent skirt along the back and a leg in beg, you shouldn’t have much flex at all with a 3/4 sheet.
