After building three of these over the years, I think the connectors I used for the bottom would be more than adequate and save a few $$ to boot. Still have one more large work table to build, so all the lessons learned can go to work there.
yes, there's one 2x4 spanning the front on the inside, then, you see two center vertical 2x4s----the one on the left was the original , the one on the right was installed to accomodate the 4 ft. shelf below the enlarger. Then I filled in the spaces with two other 2x4s, those two were actually an after thought. If you go to the Darkroom Portraits Gallery I have some pictures in there of the dry-side frame. After that photo, I installed more front to back bracing on the top side and the bottom side, it clearly needed more before installing the plywood bottom and the MDF top.
