Would 3/4" x 4' x 8' B2 Maple Plywood - Wood Veneer Core work good ?

Maple veneer core plywood in general would be fine however a lot would depend on where you get the maple plywood. Some of the plywood sold in the box stores is made in China and it's bad to delaminate and I don't use Chinese plywood anymore. The American made plywood they sell is better however it's not without defects. With Purebond brand plywood they often veneer over knot holes which don't show up until you start finishing it when the veneer wrinkles up. They are not widespread but on a large cabinet line an entertainment center you could expect to have one bad spot. The best thing to do is for the fixed parts that are difficult to replace you tap the plywood with your finger nails and see if there is any hollow spots before you cut the sheet.
