Paint grade show case

I have someone wanting me build her a showcase for her Tararium. 38wx73h. I was thinking.of using 3/4 ply and edge banding, maybe rabit the top joints and back. Dado the shelves.
She also wants louvored doors on the bottom. I have never done louvors, but it should be a matter of making a decent jig.
Any thoughts or suggestions.

If you can the project would be less work painting if you would make adjustable shelves. It's a lot easier painting the inside of the cabinet if it's a big open box.

Louvers are a lot of work if you don't have a louver machine to do it. It can be done with a jig and a plunge router but may take a full minute for each hole by the time you unclamp the stile and move it over for the next hole. I would recommend buying the louvers and building the cabinet to fit.

I do agree that it would be easier to paint, but she wants non adjustable shelving. I was thinking of taping the glue joints and priming and sanding. Assemble then spray the white finish. Inside the doors will be adjustable shelving tho.

I made some built ins using plywood with a primed medium density overlay. The ply was dead flat and painted beautifully. I covered the end grain with poplar.

As Steve suggested, I made it one big box with adjustable shelves. The only thing was, with the MDO ply, it took several people to carry it from the shop to its upstairs destination, but I only had to do that once...
