What is more wasteful, a 3/4” panel, or 1/4” worth of sawdust from planing it down to 1/2”? The thin panels in my dresser rattle a little when I close the door. As long as the panel is as thick as the dado in the rails & stiles, I think it’s just a matter of design. If you were going to do raised panels, then you’d definitely need 3/4”. Resawing might be an option if you don’t mind panels under 3/8”. You can put the tongue & groove look onto the front using various methods.
