Wood Startup: Easy as Cupcakes

Posted: 04/04/2013 2:22PM


Dovetail Gallery Inc., started in 1985 as a custom shop creating one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, is rooted in founding owner Gary Cacchione’s love of woodworking.

Cacchione says when his mother told him she had wanted him to be a doctor, he would tell her, “Ma! I’m a doctor of wood.”

A commission in 1989 to create a desk and credenza when his brother-in-law made partner in a DC law firm won Cacchionne the attention of a major architect and general contractor, a turning point that transformed Dovetail Gallery from a custom furniture shop to the architectural millwork and design company it is today.

Among signature jobs are the Golden Nugget Casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and complete interiors for Georgetown Cupcake’s New York City and Washington, DC Cupcakes Cafés. The latter is featured in the TLC cable channel show, DC Cupcakes, a sweeping cable success that further enhanced Dovetail Gallery’s rapid rise in brand positioning.
