Custom Solid Wood Drawer Boxes
Dovetail drawers require a different type of construction than standard kitchen drawers, and are usually regarded as a higher quality drawer option for homeowners. The difference between dovetail drawers and other, more traditionally constructed drawers, lies within the type of joint used in dovetail drawers.
The type of joint constructed for dovetail drawers is known as a ‘locking joint.’ The dovetail ‘locking joint’ is constructed from wedge-shaped channels cut into the wood, that interlock with one another from either side of the drawer, creating a box. The wedge-shaped pieces are called ‘tails’ and ‘pins,’ and provide a very strong joint that is quite resistant to force once the two sides are assembled.
