Andy, dovetailing ply with a router based jig is always going to be a bit hit and miss. If you have good quality Baltic Birch and are meticulous about backing boards you might get away with it. But generally you'll just get a splintery mess.Farmer Giles":xhvksm57 said:I dug the second hand Leigh Superjig I bought a couple of years ago out for the first time at the weekend. I didn't do much apart from butcher a bit of 18mm birch ply...I was contemplating which wood considering the larder drawers are hidden away most of the time. I have some ash, oak and douglas fir, all would need resawing. I don't want to go too posh on the wood but also don't want to spoil the job by going cheap.
I guess if the Leigh jig likes some timbers better than others, that might sway me. Any opinions on suitable wood for these drawers.
