Grooving a Dovetail Drawer Side For a Bottom

Machining the groove into a solid maple dovetail drawer side to accept the drawer bottom. The caliper is used to double check the distance of the bottom of the drawer groove to the drawer bottom to ensure there is room for the under-mount drawer slide hardware. Each of the four drawer sides is grooved.

Notch and Drilling of Dovetail Drawers

Notching and drilling the back of a Eucalyptus dovetail drawer to accept Blum under mount slide hardware. Our notch and drill machine ensures a level slot and an exact hole position to ensure that the slide pin fits in perfectly every time.

Stretch Wrapping Dovetail Drawers to Ship

Organizing an order of dovetail drawers on a shipping pallet. The stretch wrap holds the drawers tightly together and protects them from dust and dirt. This is going to be picked up by a local cabinet shop in their truck. A palletized order can be loaded by a fork truck very quickly. If drawers are shipping by a third party they require further packaging and protection.
