I am building a new front counter for my retail store. I am wondering if 1x4's will be a sturdy enough choice for the frame. I would rather not use 2x4's since they aren't that nice looking and will take up space with the design. I plan to use a combination of 1x4 and plywood.
i am a beginner and just feel uncertain about the strength of 1x4 at the frame.
any advice is appreciated.
