If you’re blessed with a dovetail jig and the carpentry expertise to make high quality dovetail drawers, then carry on and ignore this article. However if you want the high quality, without the hours of precise carpentry and profanity associated with botched joints, then read on. High quality furniture makers know that the dovetail joint is stronger than nails, screws or dowels. And the joints look better too. Western Dovetail makes it easy to outfit your new or existing cabinetry or furniture with dovetailed drawers and custom options including; wood species, drawer bottom thickness and location, top edge details, under-mount hardware, pull out options, file drawers, curved fronts, and special dividers, grooves and slots. They even developed the first commercially available angled dovetail joint in 2004, originally to accomplish a 45 degree angle corner drawer to be used in the corner of a kitchen in conjunction with the Blum® Tandem under-mount drawer slides. For Green cred, they are the world’s first Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) and Smart Wood certified drawer supplier. You can rest easy your lumber isn’t being smuggled in from Pirate hijacked boats from Somalia loaded with endangered hardwoods. Certified wood drawers are available in most domestic and imported species upon request. Turn-around time is often within a speedy 5-7 days, with exact lead times at the time you place your order. Pricing varies substantially based on custom options, but roughly speaking, plywood drawers are about $30 per drawer average and solid wood drawers are about $40-$60 average depending on species.

About Marc Lyman
Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
