OK, I’m not a woodworker – not yet anyway, so my question may seem silly, but….are dovetailed drawers really the best? The cabinetmaker who made my kitchen cabinets assured me that this other joint (dado and rabbet?) was just as strong and dovetails more for show. So…..what’s the scoop? From a physics point of view, he seemed correct, but other factors I hadn’t considered may be at work here.
