You may have heard that Western Dovetail's drawer box business was displaced by the earthquake that hit the Napa/Vallejo area last year on August 24th.(Here I am in the temporary quarters.)

After 5 months of moving and rebuilding our shop, I am pleased to announce that we are back to near full production capacity and shipping with normal 7-10 day lead times once again from our new location.

Please make a note of our new location address for shipments, pick-ups and deliveries. Our new shop is only a block away from our old shop on the same street on Mare Island.

Western Dovetail, Incorporated new production facility is now located at:

1101 Nimitz Ave, Suite 140, Vallejo, CA 94592

(Please call ahead if you plan on stopping by.)

Our office is now located at:

975 Walnut Ave. Vallejo, CA 94592. (Just a couple of blocks away on Mare Island.)

Our mailing address is still the same:

PO Box 1592, Vallejo, CA 94590

We sincerely appreciate your patience over the last several months as we went through such a difficult transition. Although there were many challenges, we never stopped producing. There was a short period when we started falling behind schedule during the move. Now, we are finally caught up with production and ready to take on more work. (This is our new quarters.)

Western Dovetail has suffered a huge financial loss due to the earthquake. We had no earthquake insurance and all of the costs of relocating and setting up our new shop has been on us. We had to move into a temporary shop for the first two months, then we moved again into our new space in November.

We still have a long way to go before we are fully recovered. We are still waiting for answers from the SBA Disaster Loan program and have not received any funds. There is no direct federal FEMA assistance available for corporations suffering from this disaster. All we can hope for is a low interest loan and a little help from our friends and customers to help us get through this. I know it is a lot to ask, but please help if you can.
