This month the featured Western Dovetail Customer Project is from Will Delong of Stonehill Woodcraft. Will used one of our drawers for a unique application and send us photos that show how it works. Nice work Will, you win this month's featured customer project award, a $100 coupon to use for anything in our online store!
Here's what Will sent us today...
I am responding to your invitation to display projects on your website. I have attached some pics that highlight one of your drawer boxes. This piece is a custom bedroom system, made from Alder, that we built for a client in Yountville, CA. The featured area is the shoe pull-outs that are in each end unit that is designed for hanging clothes. We mounted a Western Maple, Western Dovetail drawer box to the cabinet using heavy duty Accuride slides. The slides are slightly angled up so they lift the drawer off the floor, when pulled out, and go back to rest tightly to the floor. We also used the bottom rail, of the face-frame, as the drawer front and continued the base shoe across it, so that when the door is closed it is almost unnoticeable.
We use your drawer boxes exclusively now and always have the WD logo where you see it in the pic. I like telling our clients about where the drawers come from. A local, family-run business working out of a historic building is something they have been happy to learn about. My clients appreciate that, because that's why they hired us. We're a local, family-run company as well.
Thanks, and please let me know if you would like any more info about us or the piece.
