I've made lots of drawers out of plywood, using pocket holes for the
joinery, and slides from the hardware stores. Paint them, and they'll
look as good as anything you can buy reasonably cheaply. Use bottoms
and slides suited for what you're planning to put in them. Use full
extension slides (these are the ones that let you pull the drawer all
the way out, to get at what's in the back, instead of only 2/3 of the
way out.), they're more than worth the little extra money.
