Two layers of particle board (1.5” thick) edged in 1/8” thick solid wood all four sides then veneered is one option and will be the most stable.

The other is to carefully select 2×4’s that can be ripped into 1.5×1.5” strips of rift lumber then glue that into slabs that can be jointed and planed.

The cost limitation and the need to have flat and straight pieces doesn’t leave many options.
