I agree, I still think it looks pretty good, and I absolutely think this is a useful trick. If you and I go into the shop and have to make some utility drawers but don't want to spend an hour a drawer, this is a method that is right down our alley and far more enjoyable than lining up a bunch of butt joints and nailing them, and it will hold together indefinitely, unlike pinned drawers.

I intend to try it, and I was inspired by it the first time I saw it. I even thought about doing my kitchen cabinet drawers that way since they are essentially utility drawers, but I ultimately chickened out.
