Ply doesn t play well with drawer lock bits – or any router bits for that matter.

That’s what I was thinking. If we want nice joinery on our drawers, we just have to use solid wood.
That said, I have had improved luck using my locking miter bit with two passes. I didn’t adjust the bit height, but rather secured a 1/4” mdf spacer to the fence for the first cut. Then I removed the spacer for the second cut. That was hardwood, but it really improved the cut quality.
