Drawers made from Laminated Bamboo Lumber now available
Western Dovetail offers dovetailed drawers made entirely of Bamboo Lumber, which is harvested from well managed bamboo plantations in Asia. Laminated Bamboo comes in light and dark colors and in flat grain and vertical grain.

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.
