Ok I am struggling with this one. I have these beautiful 3/4 cherry 8’ by 6” and I am in the process of building a vanity.

I would like to use one continuos piece going vertically cut into drawers. The piece is approx 50” with 14” wide drawers by 6” high. It would create a grain flow across the face of the vanity.

Am I ok with a solid 14”x6” drawer front? Movement? This will not be a glue up? Would I be better off splitting wood and gluing back together swapping grains?

Nothing wrong with that at all. I make file drawer fronts out of solid wood. Go for it!
