cabinet backsides


I'm creating an office area using individual cabinets. The design results in the backside of two cabinets being exposed. I have the material necessary to cover them but want some installation advice. For example, should I use filler material to increase the glueing area on the vertical edges of the cabinets? Should I put filler in the center of the cabinet area to increase stability?

Depends on what the filler material is going to be!

Is to be 3/8" plywood or 1/8" pressed particle board. Or whatever?

The material to be used to cover the exposed backside is 1/8" hardboard, stained to match the cabinets.

The hardboard won't be very stiff, so I would place a couple of stringers in there to support the middle.
