Drawer boxes corners... rabbets? dbl rabbets? other?
Currently in the final leg of custom built-ins for the kids closets, and had some questions around the drawer boxes. Looked around and couldn't find exact answers, hopefully the fine folks on this board can provide sage advice.
So, my drawers will be inset with false fronts, using 1/2" poplar for the sides, 1/4" birch ply for the bottom, 3/4" poplar for the fronts. My question is around how to do the corners.
I had originally planned to use pocket screws since they'll be largely hidden, and bought a small rig for the job. However, I've been pretty comfortable with rabbets and dados previously, and am now wondering if I should just use a glued joint with brads. Here are the questions:
1) Are glued rabbets + brads a lasting joint for drawers that won't hold a ton of weight (largely clothes, maybe knick knack storage)?
2) What about double rabbets? Is the extra surface area worth the small amount of additional effort?
3) Would you use pocket screws over either of the above? Something else?
Much as I'd like to try, I don't have the energy, skill, time, material to burn, or tools for more advanced joinery (m+t, etc.), but I'm willing to pursue any joint my table saw can generate!
Thanks in advance for the help, really appreciate it.
