People Happy EntrepreNewYear: Rincon Wood Works David Reeder January 5, 2016 Join the Conversation 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.

We're going to start 2016 out right — we'll be showcasing worthy small American businesses all through the month of January.

Rincon Wood Works challenge coin display in black walnut. Check out this chisel mallet turned from hickory and walnut. A bookcase built from hard maple with lots of inlay work. These elevated dog bowls were built using reclaimed barnwood. And here's a look at some old barn wood… A “surround” for a small electric fireplace. The wood is alder. This is a turned cherry wood bowl with padauk, yellowheart and walnut. 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.” You can check out Rincon Wood Works online here or by following them on Instagram, @rinconwoodworks.
