That’s a big shelf. I don’t know that I’d completely trust the “sagulator”... it’s pretty cool… but awful scientific for something very unpredictable like WOOD! It’s kind of like trying to predict the springback on a steam bent peice of wood. You can calculate till you go cross eyed, and depending on the specific board you bend, it will NOT comply with all that calculating :-)

Anyway, I’ve built lots of big cabinet shelves, and if you put edging on the F and B, you’ll be fine. Baltic Birch is a very good plywood. If you were using particle board or MDF it’d be an entirely different story though!
