I hand cut all my drawers. But if I had to do a large number of drawers, I would setup a jig.
Jigs have the problem of being very finicky to set up. But One way to solve that is dedicate a router to that, so the bit height is set, or get the setup and make a test cut block… I like the dedicated router as it’s always ready to go.

As far as hand cut dovetails, I just like doing them, and they look great.
