I use birch ply but I do reinforce 4’ spans. Too much flex. My wife is a potter and storing her stuff between shows creates issues for shelves. Like storing concrete on shelves. The oak will be much better and with some thought you can make the shelves such that the oak can be reused when the shelving inevitably becomes obsolete. It is much harder to reuse the ply.
