Happy EntrepreNewYear: Rincon Wood Works

Rincon Wood Works is run by a former Army vetrepreneur by the name of Terry Peterson. Peterson apprenticed under a master woodworker and launched the business in 2013. Their location near Tucson gives them access to a variety of domestic and hardwood species and especially mesquite. As a craftsman his specialty is one-off pieces of custom woodworking, ordered and designed in collaboration with the buyer, but he also offers custom cabinetry and finish carpentry services to local patrons.  Looking for handmade furniture or custom wood piece and want to support a small business? Here you go.

We're going to start 2016 out right — we'll be showcasing worthy small American businesses all through the month of January. Capitalism is part of the foundation upon which our great republic stands, and small business is a vital part of that. Join us in recognizing and acknowledging that truth. Happy EntrepreNewYear!

Rincon Wood Works also periodically posts tutorials or helpful tips for those interested in woodworking, for instance:

“Hand chamfering each table leg with a block plane allows for a higher level of execution than simply sandpaper [sic] and with much less risk of a tearout than by powered means. I use pencil lines with exact measurements for my desired slope instead of scribed lines (somewhat seen in this picture). That way I don't have to worry about trying to get rid of the scribed lines later.”
