My steam box uses exterior grade plywood. It has not delaminated, and I’ve used it a fair amount. It does NOT have to look pretty. Just hold heat. In fact, I wrapped mine in foam board, (duct taped it on!) and that really helped to get the temp up. It runs at about 200 degrees F. now. Steam bending it fun. Best of luck!

Oh, BTW, Lee valley has a nice resource for steam bending. I’ve linked it below.
