DoveTail Drawers

 

 

Why Dovetail Drawer boxes?

Throughout their lives, kitchen cabinet drawers are opened and closed around 7-10 times a day, or up to 3500 times a year! Making sure that you pick a drawer joint that can withstand this type of wear and tear is crucial to the longevity of your kitchen cabinets. There are many different types of drawer joints including stapled drawer boxes, screwed drawer boxes, and rabbet joints; however, none of these will hold up like a dovetail joint. Dovetail joints are considered one of the strongest joints used in kitchen cabinetry construction and are the best solution for a kitchen cabinet drawer box. The dovetail joint is constructed from interlocking channels created from wedge shaped cuts on the ends of the drawer box sides. The wedge shaped cuts are called tails and pins and are extremely durable and resistant to force after they are assembled.


 
Dovetail drawers are not only the highest quality drawer but are also the most decorative and attractive with the cleanest appearance.
