Derek,

Even on sale, plywood is going to be nearly as expensive as solid wood. Given the difficulty of securing solid wood edgeing and getting it to stay tight against a plywood that won’t move, and the very real danger that you may sand through the top ply, not to mention the dinging possibility, I would use solid cherry. As to movement problems in the kitchen, cherry is very stable and normal woodworking precautions will be enough to keep it stable.

You won’t like the end result and you won’t save anything in the long run.
