My cupboard height is going to be 8 feet and I bought plywood and I didn't realise plywood could bend if the cupboard height is going to be more than 4 feet.

Any suggestions and ideas I should keep in mind while building the cupboard. I can't give back the plywood and get block board.

The cupboard is 10 feet(width),8 feet(height) and 2 feet(depth). I'm worried that the door of this 8 feet high cupboard might bend over the time.

My plywood is 19mm in thickness

    Welcome to Home Improvement. We're going to need a lot more detail. How thick is the plywood? How about a sketch of the cupboard you're building? What kind of corner joints are you making? Honestly, unless you're using 1/8" (~3mm) ply, there's very little likelihood of it bending once you've got it built into a box - even 1/4" (~6mm) won't "bend" once you've built it into a box shape. It might not be quite as sturdy as you'd like, but bending isn't likely.
