I would use 1x6 birch. That is what I used myself. It is better to use smaller slat sizes to reduce any swelling that eveporation will cause.

Nothing like being exact with your build only to have it warp out of square.

Another option is to use a furniture-grade plywood.....which would give you a great finished wood and it would be very moisture resistant.
