Are hand cut, plywood dove tails feasible?
Assuming you can get "good" plywood, i.e. not the brittle splinter-fest I've seen around, is dovetailing feasible?
I'd like to avoid using glue for the corner joins as I'd like to be able to dismantle it to transport it.
If they are feasible, any recommendations on what specs to look for? My assumptions having had a gander at the interwebs is:
- Use thick plywood so there is enough surface area for the dovetail to hold.
- Use some kind of backing board when cutting to minimise splintering at the edge of the cut (maybe cheaper plywood or MDF?)
This is an assumption, but a very fine toothed dove tail saw
This is the structure I am building (minis the horizontal supports, I know is won't hold up as is)
It will be used as a computer desk.
