Dovetail Drawers | Dovetail Drawer Boxes | Solid Wood Drawers in Mesa

Dovetail Drawers: The dovetail joint is a common joint technique in dovetail drawer box construction that consists of a series of cuts that interlock to form a flat edge at the corners and sides and does not require glue or additional hardware to stay fastened. Drawer Connection does however, use glue on all joints. The dovetail joint is most commonly used to join the sides and front pieces of a drawer with no nails or screws showing through to mar the beauty of the drawer front. 

Modern machine tools make dovetail cuts easier and faster, for efficient manufacture and production of large or small orders with consistent precision. Drawer Connection uses wood such as maple, alder, aspen, oak and other solid species, as well as birch plywoods and melamines on MDF cores for all of our dovetail drawer boxes. Drawer Connection can produce dovetail drawer boxes for custom design specifications on orders of any size.
