Dove Tail Joints : How Can You Tell?
This type of joint protects much better against wear and tear than a regular box joint (nailed). The dovetail joint is very strong because of the way the ‘tails’ and ‘pins’ are shaped. This makes it difficult to pull the joint apart and virtually impossible when glue is added.

All Wood Construction
Look at the unfinished edge of the cabinet box, this is where the components of the cabinets are exposed. If you see layers, like the top picture, then that means the cabinet is plywood and exactly what you want! If you find that the edge looks more like compressed sawdust, like the bottom picture, then that means it’s most likely particle board and you want to try your best to stay away from cabinets made of this.
