Another option is to use oak or another hardwood plywood rather than pine plywood and covering it with Formica. This is a personal taste issue as some like the look of wood over the look of Formica. Cost wise it will depend on the type of hardwood you select. The link lists three sheets of 3/4 plywood but 4 X 8 sheets sounds like a lot of wood. With watching you cuts two sheets should be enough. And looking at your dimensions one sheet is possible.

The thing though is with hardwood you want to watch the orientation of the cuts to keep the grain pattern consistent.
