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.
The Staff at Western Dovetail are Dovetail Drawer Experts.
Each employee is carefully trained, with an emphasis on quality, safety and efficiency. The company provides an opportunity for people interested in woodworking to learn valuable skills in a safe working environment. Many of the employees have been with the company for over 10 years. The sales and customer service staff are trained to handle even some of the most difficult questions. Hans Brede
is the National Sales Manager and personally visits custom shops in the surrounding areas. Dana Nunes
works at the front desk and handles customer service and inside sales. Matt Moller
works at the back desk and handles technical support and job scheduling. Oscar Madrigal
handles all the billing and accounting.
If the drawer is to be used as a "Pull-Out" with an exposed front, it should be noted accordingly and a PREMIUM front will be used.
