    i did see this in another forum.. all jmac said was good suggestions, same ones ide say.. although i like to mix wood glue and saw dust to a past.. jam it into the space and let dry.. works really well and is just as solid as mdf itself..

    its almost as solid....some alternatives include, fiberglass and liquide nails....both stronger than dust and glue.

    (top box) yeh, like in these situations its good.. I didnt want to screw up with angles so i filled the corners up with sawdust/glue paste.. looks much better than resin all over or liquid nails..
