I am making dovetail drawers in my project, what woods would you advice to use?

The stock timbers we chose were all picked as they worked well with hand tools. Personally I like to go with Walnut on the drawer sides and maple on the drawers fronts, firstly because they both machine well and secondly the contrast between the 2 woods highlights your joint making skills.
