It’s doable. The nature of the project means you need to get almost everything fit perfectly because mistakes will be harder to correct.

you might try cutting dovetails with a fine tooth pull saw. One thing for sure is to veneer BOTH SIDES of what your veneering. I veneer all the time, hope you use hot hide glue its an old school method and a lot of fun.

A hard setting glue will certainly help. My preference is HHG as mentioned above but urea formaldehyde will work as well if not as easily. With care you should be able to do it just fine.
One thing you might try is cutting the dovetails first and then veneering the parts. Veneer each whole piece and then cut away the gaps with a scalpel.
