Are you going to the ceiling, furdown or what ? 30 inch high upper is not for butting to an 8 ft. ceiling. Industry standard for depth is 12 inches, I build mine 13 as a standard. French cleat is ok but why ? If your ramming it to the ceiling are you allowing for crown,etc.? You wont need 3/4 on the back (1/2 max is more than adequate) . If your doing inset doors youll be needing stiles to hang them on. I would break that one into at least two compartmints,maybe three. Partitions will be hidden behind the stiles. Its doable without partitions if you have nailing available through styles on the faceframe, thus going with six doors in leau of four. Would give you more nailing. You mentioned you want to see the entire length of the cabinet without visual interuption of vertical partitions, why ? Need more info my friend ! Installing shoudnt pose a problem, just get someone on the other end.
