Good furniture grade plywood is what most use. The thing here is more the need for the strength and uniformity of the higher grade of plywood than a need for waterproofness.
A good coat of paint will allow the plywood to accept the occasional dew with no problems. Needless to say, a good finish which fully fills the grain of the wood is what is desired.
