Suggested materials for connecting panels together?

gives some suggestions, but it’s indeed somewhat time consuming and requires metal work.

Have others found easy/quicker ways to connect panels?
I’m maybe thinking for some strong enough plastic that is easier/quicker to cut and drill through

I haven’t thought of this much, but do need it myself for an upcoming project

Thinking of materials I know how to work with/manufacture/source:

  • PCB
    • Expensive material cost and unnecessary process steps for this
  • Laser Cut Materials
    • Acrylic (maybe a bit brittle)
    • MDF (some places won’t cut because of fumes)
    • maybe plywood? (never used myself)
