42” is too wide for a single thickness plywood. It will sag even with no weight on it.

On the shelves best to add the divider. You can also use 1×3 hardwood supports along each edge front and back to add support or double thickness plywood.

Use a coarse thread 2” long cabinet type screw to assemble the boxes. Liquid nails actually works pretty well on plywood.

If the unit will be wheeled around a lot, I would reinforce all the corners with 2×2’s.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
