Good source for 2 small dovetailed drawers?

Hi - if anyone has a good source for dovetailed wooden drawers (preferably assembled, prefinished, notched and drilled for Blum Tandem Plus glides) I'd appreciate it. I emailed Western Dovetail for a quote 5 days ago (OK, it's early and we had a w/e in between so more like 2 days), haven't heard back from them. Seems like not too many places on the Internet will do prefinished and assembled. This is a small order - only 2 drawers, 17x18x4. Thanks

Thanks - I found TapeEase has everthing I'm looking for, $103 for 2 drawers plus shipping. Never heard back from Western Dovetail. I seem to recall rockler didn't assemble or didn't prefinish or something. I'll look again b4 I order.

Nope, Rockler doesn't assemble or finish. So $100 for knockdown unfinished beech vs. $103 for prefininshed assembled maple at Tape-ease.

Western Dovetail got back to me this afternoon - after I already ordered from Tape-ease. Yes, they were slightly less and said 5 days to ship instead of 2 weeks. But they took 9 days to get back to me!
