best material for some basic doors

im finishing a storage area and need to make 2 doors about 2ft by 3ft . im wondering what would be the best material for making doors out of 1 piece of wood. plywood , particle board. mdf ? Im just going to paint them white and am most concerned with warping , im thinking mdf would be best cause there isnt a grain but not sure on that .. ... wood will be 1/2 inch thick ...

best material for some basic doors

depends on what you have access to. if you can cut a recess in 2x4 you could make a 2x4 frame and install 1/2 plywood. it's an easy way to make a more sturdy door than a plain sheet of plywood.
