I haven’t found many plans (3 in total) online, but came across this one:
Hopefully links are okay here.
I’m wondering how most would approach this. Solid wood can get pricey and I’ve watched Norm Abram use oak plywood and then veneer the edges. For the link above, do you think this would work? Could the legs, for example be veneered using 1/8” oak ply? Would you still use the same joinery techniques and just veneer your visible edges etc?
Thanks for any info/advice. I’m trying to get my head around the ‘why, how and when’ to use veneers vs solid wood. I’m guessing cost is the most common determinant.
Also, if anyone has a Mission-style blanket box/toy box, I’d love to see it!
