Is it possible to make the storage bench below using only wood glue, screws, and 3/4-inch plywood or MDF?
The only requirement is that it must support a 80lb kid sitting on it. 4.5" floor clearance is a must. I don't think it would be strong enough (diagram is to scale). Any ideas to make it stronger are much appreciated. I'm in a remote area with limited tools (saw, drill, screws, glue, and 1 trip to home center)
