Western Dovetail Thrives on Innovation

High quality in high demand even in a down economy.

VALLEJO, Calif., Nov. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Dovetail, Inc., a small town family owned manufacturing business from California that makes custom wood drawers, has made the Inc 5000 for the fourth consecutive year and the WOOD100 list for the last three years.


The Inc 5000 is comprised of the nation's 5000 fastest growing companies representing the Americas most innovative entrepreneurs. Of the 5000 companies on the list, fewer than 300 are in the manufacturing sector and of those only a small number actually manufacture their goods in the US.

"Western Dovetail has found a niche in the made to order wood component industry, by combining the latest manufacturing technology with age old craftsmanship we can deliver custom made heirloom quality products in real time."  Max Hunter, President, Western Dovetail, Inc.

On another note, the company has also graced an even smaller list of the nation's fastest growing woodworking companies, the WOOD 100, published by Wood & Wood Products Magazine and has made the ranks of the WOOD 100 for the third consecutive year.

The woodworking industry is experiencing something of a renaissance not unlike the industrial revolution of the turn of the century.  The new era of technology and automated machinery has made it possible for woodworkers to outsource various components to specialists across the country. By focusing on exclusively drawer related products, Western Dovetail has become the leader of custom drawer designs and applications throughout the US.

With innovations such as curved front drawers, corner drawers, under-bed storage solutions, recycle pull-outs, file drawers, pantry pull-outs, and more it's not surprising that this company has managed to grow. All of these products are available in many different wood materials ranging from exotic to the economical, and most options can be ordered in FSC certified materials with environmentally responsible finishes and materials that can help meet the requirements of LEED certified projects. Most products can be ordered custom made to the exact size required and shipped out in 5-7 days. Visit for more information.
