If you use standard plywood, you’ll have to patch voids in the edges with wood filler or cover the edges with edge banding (for more information type edge banding” in the search box above).

The trick is in making it precise enough, and gluing it without allowing it to slip.

To make faux dovetails you will need a jig to hold the box at a 45 degree angle (same as for cutting the splines) while you route a slot using a dovetail bit. Place the drawer box back in place and make sure everything still fits correctly and the drawer box is square. You can also use plywood for the bottom of your box and glue it into place (if you use solid wood for a bottom, don’t glue it or you will have problems with wood movement). This method is perfectly acceptable for building cabinet carcasses or drawer boxes.

Goods need to be transported in strong, safe and secure packaging, but sometimes there is also a need to track the boxes through the supply chain.

Plywood is a sheet material manufactured of several thin layers of wood veneer sheets glued together.

Locations will vary based on the design and dimensions of your camp kitchen chuck box.
