E-Friendly Custom Drawer Boxes

We strive to be a leader in manufacturing excellence.  At the same time, we also understand that we have a duty to behave in an environmentally responsible way.   We are blessed to be stewards of the resources granted to us.  Consequently, we are doing our part to create a sustainable system that will last for generations to come.  We do this by using:

environmentally responsible

1. WATER SOLUBLE PVA ADHESIVES

2. WATERBORNE, LOW VOC FINISH

3. NO ADDED UREA FORMALDEHYDE

4. RESPONSIBLY HARVESTED MATERIALS

WATER SOLUBLE PVA ADHESIVES
We use PVA Adhesive, which has long been popular as a non-structural carpentry glue.  It is water-soluble and non-toxic.  Moreover, it offers excellent wood gluing properties.  We also select PVA Adhesive because it is water resistant.

WATERBORNE, LOW VOC FINISH
We use pre-catalyzed, waterborne, low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) lacquer finish.  This type of finish utilizes water as a carrier rather than solvents.  We further choose this finish because it offers excellent clarity that won’t amber out.

NO ADDED UREA FORMALDEHYDE
We select all of our plywood products to be made with no-added-urea-formaldehyde, which subsequently minimizes potentially harmful emissions.

RESPONSIBLY HARVESTED MATERIALS
In addition, we verify that all of our hardwoods are harvested from responsibly managed forests.  As a result, we insure that these resources will be plentiful for subsequent generations to use and enjoy.

In conclusion, we offer some of the best e-friendly custom dovetail drawer options today.  Choose us for environmentally responsible custom drawer boxes!  View more about our eco-friendly practices and materials below, then reach out for a quote on your next job!
