I am working on the design of a desk which will have drawers with an elaborate bead running around the perimeter of the drawer. It's really more than a bead, but practically a 3/4" molding. I would like to do the drawer side connection using half blind dovetails ideally. My concern is with the bead on the side of the drawer glued perpedicular to the end grain of the face and shrinking/swelling. I saw an article on this in FWW a while back, but the drawers they do are not too tall. I have lower drawers that are up to 10" tall with the same detail. Am I worried about something that is not an issue? the wood is walnut.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks
