Welcome to Dovetail’s Metal Shop. Here, we collaborate with architects, landscape architects, designers, and clients to create unique works of art. We fabricate in-house projects as well as outside commissions and specialize in custom pieces such as furniture, entry gates and doors, fireplace surrounds, stairs, awnings, shelves, and more. Results are beautiful, heirloom pieces that define your home or commercial space.
