Why are there so many methods of doing joints in drawer boxes? I'm reading about dovetails, both through and half blind, box joints, drawer lock router bits, miter lock router bits, simple butt joints, rabbet joints, and even locking rabbet joints too. It seems that most everyone thinks the dovetail is either best or just shows a mark of quality. Even people who don't know a thing about woodworking (my mom for instance) think that the presence of dovetails means a higher quality piece, and a lack of dovetails means lower quality. If I choose to use a drawer lock router bit, or straight bits to make a locking rabbet, or even just a plain rabbet joint on my work, does that mean it's inferior to dovetailed pieces? Personally, my favorite, and also what looks to be VERY strong to me, is the half blind dovetail look, but I don't have a jig for doing this and don't have the patience to use a pull saw for through dovetails, but I don't want to let this hold me back from making furniture with drawers.
