One thought is to use a couple 2×4 cut to length use pocket screws to form back stretchers between the two side panels. Another thought is to use some metal brackets to secure the 2×4s. A third option, is to cut a new back from plywood and then securing that. Because all tools are in my garage, not his condo, cutting dadoes, mortises and tenons, or other joinery, other than perhaps a few dowels (I do have drills and forstner bits) would be very difficult.
I’ve never used pocket screws, but I just purchased the Kreg K4 MS system, so I have the capability, at least from the tool standpoint, to do them. Brackets would also be easy.
Aesthetics is not a big an issue in this case.
So my questions then are:
Thanks in advance for the wisdom of the crowd.
