Joined chests have frame and panel construction for the sides, and are plenty strong. The panels may theoretically be weaker than a solid board, but the frame will be bearing the vast majority of the stresses that the chest will endure. And you could argue that the frame and panel construction makes the chest less prone to problems down the road due to seasonal wood movement.

Blessed art thou among woodworkers, and blessed is the fruit of thy saw, dovetails.
Holy St. Roy, Master of Chisels, pray for us sharpeners now, and at the hour of planing.
