Solid wood dovetail drawer

Dovetail Furniture Construction

There are several options for drawer construction, and the best ones offer strength and storage flexibility.  57NORTHPLANK uses only locking joints, such as the dovetail shown above.  These provide significant strength and maximizes the surface area for gluing allowing secure, tight connection.

57NORTHPLANK exclusively uses English Dovetail drawer construction. They provide a stronger drawer, with a significant holding capacity.

Soft-closing undermount drawer glides

Quality Hardware

57NORTHPLANK uses soft-closing door hinges and drawer glides.  In fact, we only offer soft-closing glides and hinges.  Great for everything from desks to dressers, self-closing drawer slides will close a drawer softly even when slammed shut. The drawer runners are both undermount as well as being a full extension glide, this allows for increased storage space in the drawer.  Each drawer can be easily removed from the glides.  All of our doors also feature a soft-closing door hinges.  Our slides and hinges are available in a variety of sizes to best fit your door and drawer size.

57NORTHPLANK Craftsmanship

Every piece of 57NORTHPLANK furniture uses either solid hardwoods or quality veneers and plywoods, and we never use MDF or particleboard in any of our products.

57NORTHPLANK sources most of our wood locally (from the American Midwest). We will take no detail for granted, from the hardware selection to the exact dimensions.  Our process ensures we build with the best materials to your exact dimensions and standards.

Moreover, every piece of 57NORTHPLANK furniture undergoes a thorough inspection before it’s shipped directly to its new home and the inspection is always signed and dated.
