Western Dovetail moved into the old "Jointer's Shop" at Mare Island in August of 2003. The 100 year old building on the former Navy base has a long history of woodworking. Some of the original equipment is still in use, including the central dust collection. This historic facility allows the company to stock more materials, reduce lead-time and offer more options while maintaining all operations in-house. Western Dovetail is now even more prepared to meet the growing demand for dovetail drawers without sacrificing quality.
Custom machining for under-mount hardware
Western Dovetail was the first to offer custom machining for concealed drawer runners. Under-mount hardware requires precision machining such as notching and drilling and specific bottom placement. This company can notch, drill, and install locking devices for any major brand of under-mount hardware. The staff at Western Dovetail can help calculate the drawer sizes using the customerís cabinet openings, combined with the hardware specifications to determine the required dimensions. Major brands of drawer slides are stocked in-house and can be shipped with the drawers including conventional side mount slides.
When using a drawer or hardware product for the first time, do a mock up to familiarize yourself with the installation procedures before placing an order.
