Custom Mixed Specie Drawer Boxes

Set Your Cabinetry in a Class of its Own

For high-end clients who desire custom specialty design, mixed specie custom drawer boxes are the perfect option.  You can choose:

1. CONTRASTING SIDES & ENDS

2. CONTRASTING TOP LIP

SIDES & ENDS
Contrasting wood species on the sides and ends help highlight the custom dovetail joinery.  That is to say, this makes the dovetail joint really “pop” when the drawer box is opened!  For example, choosing Walnut ends with Hard Maple sides, provides a terrific contrast.

TOP LIP
A contrasting top lip specie adds an extra touch of class.  For instance, a Walnut top lip on a Hard Maple drawer box provides a beautiful contrast.  You can choose to have this feature on the top edge of the sides only, or on the sides and ends!  This option will set your cabinetry in a class of its own and provide additional appeal to your high-end clientele.

MIXED SPECIES WITH ALTERNATE DOVETAILS
When you combine mixed specie options with through or traditional dovetail options, this will be the finishing touch for your high-end custom cabinetry.  View our mixed specie drawer box options below, then reach out for a quote on your next job!

Top Lip

This drawer box offers a unique look that is designed to have a top lip that contrasts the sides of the drawer box.

An example would be; maple sides with a walnut top lip.

The lip can be on 2 sides (sides only) or all 4 sides (sides, front, and back).

The standard lip height is the thickness of the sides.

  • For a drawer box with 1/2″ thick sides, the height of the lip would be 1/2″.
  • For a drawer box with 5/8″ thick sides, the height of the lip would be 5/8″.

 


Different Specie on the Front and Back

This drawer box offers a distinctive high end look that has a contrasting specie on the front and back of the drawer box.

An example would be; maple sides with a walnut front and back.

This look highlights the dovetail joinery, whether it is a half blind or through joint.
