I would do it by making a flat-fronted dovetail
drawer front and apply the wedges after.

The piece was probably made in an industrial
setting with big or even specialized machinery
and cutterheads.

I think Loren nailed it. It looks like there is a seam on the top of the bottom drawer where the wedge was applied later. That would be the easiest way to reproduce something like this. Cut the finger pull with a router first, then cut the angled face on the TS and clean up with a jointer or hand plane.

Kinda looks like a seam as well. The grain looks like doesn’t quite match so I would say individual pieces glued onto a flat face. Other wise it’s gonna be hard to duplicate.
