Drywall, Wood, and Plaster

Greetings, All

I'm a novice cabinet builder. I'm currently working on a project that involves drywall, wood, and plaster. My counter top for thei project is 1/2 wood but the siding is drywall. I joined the two using metal corner strips. My question is will the plaster crack because of the movment of the wood? Is there a better material to use besides plaster?

Welcome to the forums!

I'm not sure I understand. Are the sides of the cabinet covered with drywall?....... and by plaster do you mean joint compound with which to finish the drywall with?
Is there a reason you wish/need to use drywall instead of wood?

If I have a grasp of the project, the drywall should be finished seperately from the wood. Use a piece of moulding to hide the transision.
