About Our Dovetail Drawer Boxes

A dovetail drawer box is a type of woodworking joint commonly used in the construction of drawers. It is characterized by interlocking triangular teeth, or “dovetails,” on the sides of the drawer that fit together to form a strong and stable joint. Dovetail joints have been used for centuries and are highly valued for their durability and aesthetic appeal. They are often used in fine furniture and cabinetry, as well as in mass-produced furniture and drawers. The precise cut of the dovetails requires skilled craftsmanship, making them a hallmark of quality in woodworking. Choose from three different styles:
