There is no plywood that going to work for a kitchen counter top.
May want to look into a butcher block style instead.
It will be about 1-1/2" thick and made from strips of solid hard wood.

If you decide to go with butcher block, IKEA has some great beech, oak and birch finished hardwood blocks. I used their oak on island top and also part of my countertop.

Length: 73 1/4 "
Depth: 39 3/8 "
Thickness: 1 1/2 "
