I’m building a desk and will be veneering the lower drawer fronts with 1/8″ birdseye maple that I have bookmatched. The size is 12.5 x 17″ and the sides will be sliding dovetails. I was going to use high grade plywood for the substrate. My question is do I need to apply a veneer to the back side to resist warping or will the drawer sides (that are dovetailed into the front) be enough to resit any movement?
