Ok – thank you for the replies fellows.

If 7mm is enough material under the groove to support the bottom, i guess the extra space it takes is not really an issue.

I just don’t see how it is sturdier to have a bottom resting on a 6mm deep and 7mm high ledge, that is made up of thin laminated layers of wood (as it is in plywood :) ), than having it “rest” on several metal screws that is embedded into the side of the drawer, and reinforced with glue, that is stronger than the wood.

Guess it’s just a matter of aesthetics and tradition, and maybe the groove style is the preferred method because it works with both sheet gooods and solid wood.
