Since you built it in the winter when it’s dry, it’s pretty certain the wood will be expanding in the more humid months that follow. I’m not sure how much clearance you left though, so it’s hard to say if it will be a problem.

If you don’t want to use plywood, then shiplapped boards, not butted tightly, will allow movement without putting any strain on the case.
