Dovetail on 1x2s

Hi.. I'm new here. I've recently ordered a Porter Cable Dovetail jig to attempt to make some drawers using dovetail joints, which would be a first for me.

But I also have to join some oak 1x2s together (on the longer side) and am wondering if there is simply not enough wood to use a dovetail joint for that..? Thanks.

You would probably be better using a scarf, finger or half lap joint to lengthen boards.

Sorry--I wasn't clear. I'm just joining on the 2 inch end of a 1x2 (really 1.5) like a picture frame! Thanks for your quick reply.
