It's made from recycled motorcycle fenders and bicycle forks. ;D

For smallish drawers I use 1/4" melamine coated mdf.

When using half blind dovetails I cut a 1/4 dado in all 4 sides, unless I rip the back down so the bottom is replaceable.  The dado goes into the last full pin in a side and the same recess on the front and back.  It doesn't show.

Yeah, I figured that out when I finally got around to actually cutting the dado. You just have to make sure the doesn't go into the pin. I tried on a scrap piece first and found out that it doesn't show.
