In my designing I have been using webframes for my drawer dividers with a solid wood front band. But then I got to thinking…is it ok to use plywood for your webframes? Is it strong enough? I guess what I am asking is is it ‘right’ to use plywood for webframes…

no I would still stub tenon and groove them, with a dust cover…I just got to thinking as to whether plywood would be ok or not…

or pocket screw them together…I havent decided on the final aspect yet..

I think that ply or solid wood is OK. You are not making a period piece where you need to be true to original.
