Default Half blind joints on rabbet drawer front

I use the EZ Pro Dovetail Jig (General Tools EZ Pro Aluminum Dovetail Jig Kit II-861 - The Home Depot) which is a very basic no frills jig, but I like it because it was inexpensive and easy to use.
Does anyone know if there is a way to use this jig to make a rabbited front drawer?
The jig makes great half blind dovetails but I cannot find any info how to use a board with a lip on it.
Thanks in advance to all my router pals!

I believe their video would have shown it if it were possible. Maybe it's time to graduate to a fixture that will do both styles and do them much faster. The EZ Pro is a nice idea. There are models in the same price range that work fine.

Yes...some rules to follow though...

Drawer front material must be thick enough to accommodate a rabbet the width of the sides and depth of cut of the bit...bit must cut flush with rabbet...
Rabbet must be same dimensions as side...1/2 x 1/2, for example...
When you set depth gage it must go deeper by the amount of rabbet (offset), 1/2"
Rabbet'ed board needs to go in jig rabbet side to the outside...
Center the front of drawer using the rabbet'ed dimension...must be same as height of side...
Now the edge of the rabbet looks like the edge of an otherwise unrabbet'ed board...(fools the jig)
...bit height is critical...
...cut away...

Keep us posted...Nick

Hey thanks Nick I'll give it a try on some scrap material and let you all know
I'm making a bathroom storage cabinet that will have two drawers. Plan B is to put face on the drawer fronts so I can hide the side sliders.
Your one smart cookie Nick, thanks again!
