Cheaper solution: get 2 or 3 lengths 1" square steel tube (Dexion
Speedframe or equivalent), drill 3/16" holes through them every 12" -
18", and screw them to the underside. That'll stiffen it enough. I've
got some benches that are made rather like like that, and I can stand
on them without them sagging.
