I have tried to make dovetails with a jig setup and used 3/4" plywood with a maple veneer but I soon learned that the wood chips out and you are left with a mess. So I am thinking that solid wood is the way to go.

Hi Bill

All you need is a good dovetail jig that you can use on the Kreg router table, once you have the Katie jig you can put dovetails in place very easy and right out of the box in about 5 mins. or less.

The Katie Dovetail jig, just the BEST dovetail jig

Hi Bill

You can use plywood for dovetails but it must be good plywood like 1/2" thick B.Birch and backup boards (1/8"thick MDF) in the jig..for support of the plywood.
It needs support going into and coming out of the dovetails slots.
