If I was in that situation, I would look at having plywood laser cut by a steel rule die manufacturer. This is how the Bulldog kit was made.

I don't have much in the way of woodworking tools so I make cameras using techniques which I would usually use with metal and plastics. I don't have the facilities to plane and thickness wood so I buy it in already thicknessed to 9mm. Then I draw up the parts on CAD and CNC cut them.
