Jim definitely gave you the answers to your questions, and then some. I also agree with John, dovetails and plywood doesn’t work out well in my mind (not just the looks, but the actual cutting and fitting of the joints). I’ve also found dovetails to be easier in thinner stock than 3/4”. I’d been practicing in 3/4” and when I used them in an actual project I used 1/2” and they were much better than any of my practice ones.

Good luck! And the nachos made me happy :-)
