Sven, that looks like a reasonable approach to drawer construction. A center slot keeps the drawer from racking. On conventional flush fronted drawers, I was taught to make the back about 1/16” shorter than the front. This makes the drawer slightly trapezoid in shape but takes away some problems if the drawer space isn’t perfect.
