Dovetail and Dowel Plywood Drawer Boxes
It is important to remember there are two ways drawers are constructed to link or join together. Both are proven ways and at DC Drawers we specialize in both methods.
Dovetail drawer boxes are great because they can construct a drawer without using mechanical fasteners using what is known as a dovetail joint. While Dowel drawers use joints that are incredibly strong.
Dowel Drawers | Custom Dowel Drawer Manufacturer in Mesa, AZ
Custom dowel joinery is a common joint technique in drawer construction, used to reinforce a butt joint, where two pieces of wood fit together at the sides using wooden pins (dowels) that fit into corresponding pre-cut holes. Drawer Connection uses pre-glued dowels in the assembly process, maintaining the structural integrity of each drawer and ensuring that all dowels stay fastened securely. Doweled drawer construction is most commonly used to join the sides and front pieces of a drawer with no nails or screws showing through to mar the beauty of the drawer side.
Modern machine tools make dowel cuts easier and faster, for efficient manufacture and production of large orders with consistent precision. Drawer Connection uses materials such as melamines on particle board, as well as 9-ply baltic birch in their dowel joint drawer boxes. Drawer Connection can create dowel drawers for custom design specifications on large or small orders.

Dovetail Drawers | Dovetail Drawer Boxes | Solid Wood Drawers in Mesa
Dovetail Drawers: The dovetail joint is a common joint technique in dovetail drawer box construction that consists of a series of cuts that interlock to form a flat edge at the corners and sides and does not require glue or additional hardware to stay fastened. Drawer Connection does however, use glue on all joints. The dovetail joint is most commonly used to join the sides and front pieces of a drawer with no nails or screws showing through to mar the beauty of the drawer front.
Modern machine tools make dovetail cuts easier and faster, for efficient manufacture and production of large or small orders with consistent precision.
