Little Drawer Question

I've made quite a few drawers. But I'm planning a little jewelry box with drawers of 3/16" wood.
My normal half-blinds obviously won't work.
Little box joints? Tiny brads seem a little "rustic".
Any recommendations?

Little box joint would be good. Also a thru dovetail.

I stand corrected. Box joints AND thru doves are possible with thin boards.
(Just found these).
Thanks

Oops. You know I meant blind dovetails.

Glue on a 45 degree corner will be just fine. You could even get fancy and add some splines to the corners.

That's why I ask silly questions on the forum. I completely forgot about the old "45's with the splines" trick. I've done those before (might even have a picture) and they came out nice. Those will probably be the winner.


Thanks for the help. After I started digging around, I was really amazed to see a bunch of antiques with super tiny dovetails, half-blind dovetails, etc.
Antiques usually have a way of humbling me.
