Then I think that if all sides are sealed if they do get damp they will not be able to dry out quickly and will rot. What have others with wood cabinets done or what would you recommend?
For the sides that don't show mix up some thinned 20 minute epoxy and brush it on like paint
. Will protect against water and much more. When I flew Glow powered RC airplanes that is what we did to fuel proof the plywood bulkhead the motor mounted to as well as any bare balsa wood in the motor compartment. You can thin epoxy with alcohol. Just be aware that you can't paint
over the surfaces you do this to without extra preparation so plan and prep accordingly.
