I’ve made some plywood drawers using a
drawer lock joint. I found the problems
were not so bad with a zero clearance fence
and so forth, but I eventually concluded I
was making more fuss of it that was necessary
and stared using pinned rabbets instead.

A not-bad looking joint with plywood can be
made by joining the corners with glued rabbets
or butt joints and then after the glue is dry
drill holes and put lengths of dowel rod in
them. It’s strong, gives the impression they
were built with care, and doesn’t take a lot
of time.
