ABOUT US

Dovetail Fine Woodworks is a partnership of artisans with old world woodworking skills. We are passionate about wood as a material:

In skilled hands, it is timeless, rich, and life-affirming – yet the art and craft of truly understanding and working with wood has largely been lost in recent times. We take joy in redressing that balance.

Each board of wood is unique – from the age of the tree, to its species; from the individual microclimate in which the tree grew, to the pattern in which it was sawn into boards – all the way through to the process by which it was dried and stored. All of these factors have a big impact on the wood’s lustre, appearance, workability and ideal usage.

We pay close attention to all of this and more – as true artisans have done for centuries. We’re proud to say that we make our one-of-a-kind and limited series pieces honestly: with dedication, love and joy – and to an exceedingly high standard.
