Garage "Shelves" with doors

Looking for some suggestions on he best method to make some shelves and add doors to them....essentially a big storage cabinet.

I'm looking at 4' wide by 8' high cabinet with 2 shelves at 16" and 6 at 10". Going to put plywood sides on and use plywood for shelves....

Not sure if this is best method or not, but it's how I've built other shelves in the garage....these though require doors to keep my wifes things out of the dust.

What is best way to make and mount doors? I was thinking of 4 equal sized doors?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Why don't you just build a free standing unit with a back? With the size mentioned, I'd build two units at 2 foot wide and put wheels on the bottom for ease of moving them about.
