Why Not Use Half Laps?!?

1 min read

Video on building the drawers:

While half laps might seem like a more “elegant” solution, there’s always more factors to consider:
– Additional set up time to make the more complex cuts,
– Increased risk of making costly mistakes from using a more complex method
– Extra material needed / can’t use up small scraps of plywood to complete the project,
– limited by the tools you have / not practical,
– expectations for the finished product.
These are all things (and others I’ve forgotten already) that I think about before I start the project and decide on a construction method.
