I am planing on making the attached storage seating bench this weekend but am unsure if it will work or not. I am concerned with the vertical spacing that I have. With people sitting on the bench I am not sure if it will sag or not. I am planing on using 3/4" plywood for the top and bottom of the bench and using 2×4 to build a frame to hold them. The vertical slats would also be made of 3/4 plywood. I just don't think that will be enough to support the weight of people sitting. Any ideas how to achieve such long spans between the vertical slats (44.5") I plan to put a face frame on it using 1×2's.
