Our work





The Dovetail Joint designs and manufactures high quality, bespoke kitchen and other built-in furniture.  Materials used are to the specification of the customer and we work very closely with you to ensure that you get what you would like. Our timber and panels suppliers belong to the Forest Stewardship Council, or FSC whose logo identifies products which contain wood from responsibly managed forests which are independently certified in accordance with the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council.

We manufacture other kinds of built-in furniture, most notably wardrobes, alcove cupboards, bathroom cabinets and home office furniture.


We undertake many commercial projects every year including office reception areas, high quality, bespoke shop fittings and other built-in office furniture.


Installation of furniture is not generally carried out by the company but there is always a close liaison with fitters, electricians, plumbers, designers and architects.



Most of our working day is spent in the design and manufacture of kitchen furniture. Kitchens manufactured here are truly distinctive, due in part to the high quality of materials and fittings used. Additionally, painstaking attention to detail, superb finish, and the subtle personalisation of each job gives us real pride in our work and enables us to achieve our goal of complete customer satisfaction. We can suggest, and supply if required, appliances, worktops in granite, steel, wood, glass or Corian and other accessories which will complement and complete the project. If the job requires a fitting service, then good quality fitters with a proven track record can be recommended by us.  Although the company will work with the fitters very closely, they are directly employed and paid by the customer.
