I don't know any specific real sites, but a google search I sure would show up a bunch (like in the thousands) on all kinds -- dovetails, box joint, router made drawer joints, dado-housed, simple butt, ...
There is always Fine Woodworking (www.taunton.com) and all the other woodworking mags and rec.woodworking, too.
What you want?

Mel, I checked the on line index for Fine Woodworking Magazine and there were so many references to the topic "Drawers" I lost count. You can get DVDs of past editions or try the public library. Some people have complete sets of the issues and use them in conjuction with the on line index as an encyclopedia. Joe G

I honestly would not expect to see very many "how too" articles in Fine Woodworking ...that Magazine is really not published for harry homeowner etc... more for the advanced woodworker.
Popular Woodworking, should have more BUT it would be quicker for the OP just to drive to Lowes or Hom Depot and check out the magazines and project idea rags they sell...

Not specifically, no, but...I've been subscriber since V1, #about 3 so have pretty good idea of content. There are many articles that include drawers and workbenches, etc., and the sidebars of those are often at a moderate to less level. If nothing else, will be an eye- opener of possibilities which can't be all bad! :)
But, in particular, there has been a noticeable shift over the last few years to more introductory/beginner/low intermediate audience as opposed to the perceived "elitist" view of years ago. Not that work shown isn't to be admired... :)

Thinking about what I had seen relatively recently since...
I picked up the Winter '06/'07 Shop Edition and in the article on building a toolchest for storage it described building a set of plywood drawers using box joints and how to align sliding hangers to get them even...around the first of the year there was an article that included building kitchen cabinets that drew ire from many but had a very thrifty and effective drawer building technique...

I have a couple of old style steel office desks from Goodwill for $10 each. They are even more solid than the usual wood workbenches and can take a lot of banging. If you don't want the whole desk there are still two to four drawers in each desk you can take off for your purpose. Its still only $10.
