For those of you that have been using JointCAM for a while, I'd appreciate any feedback on my dovetail jig plan. Thanks.

Based on an email response from Gerry, instead of T-track, I added additional holes for threaded inserts to be able to clamp the drawer parts down more effectively as well as to have cam or push clamps to push the boards tight to the fences. The holes are 4" apart left to right and 2" apart vertically, staggered to ensure strength. And I will be using strong, void-free Russian Baltic-Birch 3/4" plywood, mainly because that is what I use most. For clamping knobs, I picked up the Woodpeck Multi-Knobs from the local Woodcraft. Thanks Gerry.
