Newbies Bookcase Design – Any pointers on strengthening a shelf?


Design done in SketchUp: fairly new at woodworking, and this would be my first larger piece. It’s a bookcase built using solely plywood but my worry is that the lower right shelf divide (highlighted in the Imgur link) would be taking a lot of stress as it would only be held up by dowels or screws in the connecting boards on the left and right. All the advice I can find online wouldn’t apply to this design.Am I putting too much thought into it, or would this be a genuine flaw when it comes to building and using it? What ways could I strengthen it? via /r/DIY
