I would use baltic birch or Apple ply for the tops. Other than Home depot, they will always be flat. I would use nothing but for table tops. The extra cost is always worth it.
If that is what you are already using, find another source.
As for the adhesive, titebond is more than sufficient.
Your biggest problem here is that it is for a FRIEND. If you underestimated the cost, that's all on you. If you ask for more money, that will kill any confidence he has in your ability to do it properly.
