I am planning to make a 4 ft seating bench with a solid back of glued up boards. The back would be about 48w x 36h.
My question is for attaching the back to the sides or end panels. I was going to dado the back into the end panels and glue and/or screw to secure. Will attaching securely cause a movement problem? How to you attach allowing for expansion / contracion and still provide the ridgidity needed?

Also, can I use 12" boards glued up for the panels or is narrower boards necessary?
