Addendum: Before buying the jointer I wasted a massive amount of time trying to joint acceptably with various other methods. None worked well, and all too serious sinks of time. Should have bought the jointer much earlier.

I’d recommend frame and panel doors and drawer fronts. Solid wood will warp. If you want a sleek look you can do a really good quality plywood with edge banding. If you did that your build would be much, much faster as you are just cutting rectangles for all the fronts.

And I’m fortunate to live in an area with three plywood suppliers that serve the professional cabinet making trade within 15 minute drives. Find one near you and make friends with one of the sales people. Be nice. Don’t destroy their lumber stacks. Let them know what you are doing and they will likely treat you well.
