Walnut is one of the best cabinet woods. It is pretty stable.

There’s a lot of walnut in that job. Dowels are not needed
in edge joints for strength, though they can be used for
alignment. Biscuits are a little easier to work with in alignment

Plywood will sag over those spans without reinforcement.

Walnut ply doesn’t take a finish the same as solid walnut –
the glue in the veneer pores affects the color.
