The Sagulator is your friend!

I used 3/4 inch, 11-ply birch plywood for the wide shelves in our kitchen cabinets. They all got “faced” with 3/4×3/4 maple. That facing was more for looks as I don’t have edge banding, but the hard maple will add even more sag resistance. The 3/4 plywood by itself has real good numbers though.
