You mean metal angle braces? That's what I meant by "straps" (though looking back at my old post I should have been more clear). If you meant something else, I'd be interested.

I was thinking I'd be doing wood pieces in all corners of each large cavity within for stability.

And I do need those furring strips to allow for the baseboard.

Yes, it's a frame with shelves attached to the wall. That's the idea. I don't see a lot of value attaching backing to enclose the cavities (the wall can serve that purpose), plus it would make the units very heavy when I went to move them into place (and I'm doing this alone). Doing it this way I can build outwards from the wall, attaching everything as I go. At least that's what I'm hoping.
