I can justify buying extremely thick lumber (like 12/4) for cutting relatively QS drawer box sides. I have never bought 12/4 lumber for this but I think I should. The ideal board width is as wide as you can get it. The wider it is, the more straight-line grain you’ll have, and then you can cut the slab down to manageable size and then slice from the sides and there’s your QS drawer sides. You wouldn’t need anything unusual for that, any decent bandsaw would be fine.
