Christian Becksvoort made a drawer box like this out of solid dovetailed all together cherry. My skills aren’t what his are so I used 1/2” birch plywood for my drawer carcass. The sides and the back on secured in rabbets and I covered all the exposed plywood edges with some cherry (sides/back) and padauk (on the top) strips. The drawer is a dovetailed box with a piece of 1/8” cherry applied to the front. Maybe after another year of practice I can do this again like Christian’s box drawer.

Well, there’s nothing wrong with yours. It looks very nice.

I agree but the one Christian did not only looks nicer, it has a lock too.

Thanx I learned a few things making this. I’ll make another but in all solid wood.
