Just replacement shelves, but for this project I used cheaper Home depot plywood. The last photos shows the difference between more expensive plywood from a local supplier vs the HD type. HD type has quite a few voids and thinner veneer. I used it for shelved in the pantry becasue it is strong enough and looks ok, but didn’t use it for drawer boxes becasue that’s just not a good idea and would be frustrating.

For drawer bottoms, I use Baltic Birch ply. For shop drawers and such, I will use it for the whole drawer.
