Quick survey .... Put the walnut on top, or rout the drawer front out, and mount it flush? Whatta ya think?


Is this even a question?

Let me rephrase...

Should I cobb it together or do it right?

I will admit, I'm surprised you even needed to ask.

I assumed you were going to improve the look of a plywood drawer by putting a full face on the front. I would vote for a full wood front. You could still use the walnut trim around the sides and something like Oak in the field to make an attractive drawer.
If you are really going to leave a raw plywood front on the drawer than I would vote either for no walnut or recess the walnut. I think the raised edges would get caught on everything and become annoying or chipped or torn.

Definitely route it out and install flush. Much classier look.

I think a nice bevel or rounded edge on the inside of the strips and surface mounting would be neat especially if the corners are mitered. Sort of like a sunken panel door.

Trim is like a ladies makeup. Some is applied in a professional manner and some is daubed on.

If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Raw plywood is kind of a misnomer. I used "cabinet grade" plywood, so if I just clear coat it, it should be fine.

So, the dip my head in a 5 gallon bucket of makeup, and scrape off the excess, is not going to work here? Lol.

That was a running joke I had with a fellow co-worker from years ago.
