I opted to build my drawers from baltic birch plywood and used through dovetails in an oak front then install a false front. I mounted those on soft-close undermount slides to preserve the traditional dovetail look of the drawer.
Since this table is symmetrical on all four sides, I wanted to maintain that look as closely as I could, between the two panel sides, the side with the one large drawer and the side with the two small drawers. I built all four sides at the same time, milling everything at once, with one exception. In the sides with the drawers, there is no groove in the rail and stile for the panel. Also, for the side with the two drawers, the “panel” which would become the drawer front, was just crosscut in two down the middle. I then lined up the two drawers so there is very little different between all four sides.
