Agree – just a short video describing when to use what, what the benefits and drawbacks are, techniques that allow for wood expansion, etc. It seems like this area is so critical yet always neglected.
I would be interested in this, too. The support structure for a set of drawers like two columns of drawers in a dresser seems complicated, confusing, and intimidating. You can find many approaches to them, but which are durable? Which match up to hand tool methods? When do you use housing dados in the carcase? When to use frames vs. rails? There are dozens of options.
This might be handled well just by talking to us with some sketches and photos for illustration, no need to actually build a project.
