So, in order to try and get things back on track, Cincinnati Dowel has proudly decided to close our retail store Thursday and Fright and offer our Cyber Monday deals online early! We shall call it…. Black Cyberday Weekend-ish! (Side note: I realize this isn’t the most catchy of names, but I have turkey on my mind and it was the best I could come up with. Also, we don’t really have a retail store, but that is neither here nor there.) From Thursday November 27th thru Monday December 1st, we will be offering 20% your entire order. Just enter “SALE20” when checking out. To my recollection, this is the biggest discount we have ever offered, but what the heck, ’tis the season of giving right?
If you don’t have any upcoming projects that require dowels, remember that we offer a wide range of different products that might be of interest. Also, feel free to check out our Pinterest page for some DIY craft ideas that use dowels. The internet is literally overflowing with DIY Christmas decorations that you can make using something as simple as wood dowels.
So have a happy Thanksgiving, eat lost of turkey, and enjoy your Black Cyberday Weekend-ish courtesy of Cincinnati Dowel!!!
All of us here at Cincinnati Dowel & Wood Products are please to announce that we will now be carrying a line of these high quality adhesive products available through our online store. If you are not familiar with JB Weld, well then shame on you because you should be. They have been in business since 1969 manufacturing epoxy products that will bond things together until the end of time. Comparing JB Weld epoxy to regular glue is like comparing a rowboat to a monstrous 200′ luxury yacht. This stuff will stick more than Flick’s tongue to a frozen flagpole. There’s a reason their tagline is “Word’s Strongest Bond”. However, it was just recently that JB Weld released a line of wood related products to meet the needs of all of you woodworkers out there. It was at that moment we knew a bond between our two companies had to be made.
We are constantly looking to add new products, so if there is an item you are looking for and don’t see listed, please contact us and we will certainly look into carrying it. Also, feel free to post pictures or comments below regarding any projects where you have used our wood products or JB Weld epoxies!
Finally, as an added bonus to getting these great new products, we are also offering a 10% discount on your entire order when you purchase any of the JB Weld products through our online store. Just enter the coupon code “JBWELD” when checking out. This offer is only valid for a limited time, so don’t wait!
Keep Calm and Dowel On
From now through Friday, anyone who orders on our online store and purchases at least one Specialty Square Dowel will receive 10% off their entire order. Just enter the coupon code “SQUARE” when checking out.
You’re welcome world…]]>
It is with our utmost pride and sincerity that we are pleased to announce our line of Specialty Square Dowels! Hot off the lathe, we now offer Square Dowels in Oak, Maple, Walnut, and Cherry. Available in 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, and 3/4″, these Square Dowels are exactly what your woodworking projects are missing. If you are skeptical or don’t believe that there are many uses for square dowels, the you obviously haven’t considered pen blanks, shelf railing, wine racks, accent pieces, media racks, crafts projects, or other fine woodworking projects- just to name a few. There are thousands of uses for round dowels and just as many uses for square ones, it just requires a little imagination.
I apologize for any disappointment if you started reading this blog because the title lead you to believe there was going to be an intellectual discussion regarding Huey Lewis and the News or some deep connection to the classic film, American Psycho. However, hopefully this Earth-shattering news that Cincinnati Dowel & Wood Products now offers Square Dowels in Oak, Maple, Walnut, and Cherry will turn that disappointment into pure jubilee.
Until next time….
Turning pens is very popular and a great place to start. Pens are small, easy to manage, and the basic kits are relatively inexpensive. They make great gifts and after a little experience, you can sell them and put a little extra spending money in your pocket. You can find all sorts of different species of wood to craft your new writing utensils, but trust me when I say that when you first start you are going to mess up ….a lot, and nothing is more frustrating when you blow out an Afzelia blank that you just spent $10 on. So where can you get quality pen blanks that have a good variety but won’t break the bank when you destroy your first few rounds? If you guessed Wal-Mart you are completely wrong. If you guessed Cincinnati Dowel, then you are an utter genius and deserve a pat on the back.
Our 3/4″ x 3/4″ x 6″ Pen Blank Assortment Pack is perfect for those new to the pen turning world. They consist of 12 pieces of exotic Malaysian hardwoods. Now, you may not have a list of exactly what is included in each assortment, but at less than $1 per blank, you can spend all day creating stunning works of arts, or a beautiful pile of failed scraps, all for less than the cost of a new DVD. But what if you are already a skilled pen turner? Then buy twice as many packs! These are quality blanks at a great price! You can give them away as presents, try out cutting new patterns or designs, or just stock up your portfolio with some exotic Malaysian species. Regardless of your skill set, it’s a win-win.
This post is a bit longer than I had planned, so I will wrap it up with this- As the season TURNS, if you want a hobby that will also TURN a profit, then learn to TURN pens by TURNING to Cincinnati Dowel and getting a few Pen Blank Assortment Packs.
Cheesy, I know, but its been a long day and this was the best ending I could come up with. Until next time…]]>
If you are starting to wonder what this has to do with Cincinnati Dowel & Wood Products or any of the spectacular products we offer, be patient, I am getting to that.
I have been to a few Opening Days in my life but unfortunately this year I will not be in attendance due to work obligations. The Red’s organization realized this dilemma that many people face and came up with a genius idea…. Opening Night! There isn’t another parade, but the second game is an evening game filled with lots of festivities and fireworks. Thanks to my good friend Brad, I will be attending (thanks Brad).
Ok, so now that we got all of that out of the way, lets get down to how this relates to Cincinnati Dowel. We make wood dowels. Wood dowels are used to make wood bats. Wood bats are used in Major League Baseball. Major League Baseballs’s historic Opening Day in Cincinnati is today. No, we do not make baseball bats, but that is not the point.
Although ESPN is to blame for stripping the Red’s of this time honored tradition, they make up for it in other ways. While I was reluctantly watching the pre-game show last night they showed this video that I found quite interesting. It shows the entire process of making a bat from cutting the tree down to delivering it to the clubhouse. I wish it was being delivered to Joey Votto instead of Hanley Ramirez but oh well. Check it out below…
Who would have ever thought that there would be a video put together by ESPN involving making dowels with dubstep music? Anyway, watch the official Opening Day game between the Reds and Marlins at 4:05 pm EST today and be sure to check out Cincinnati Dowel’s online store to buy some wood dowels and wood balls.
The Monday after Thanksgiving, a.k.a. Cyber Monday, is considered to be one of the least productive work days for office workers all over the country (3-day turkey binge eating+Monday morning at the office+huge online store discounts= low productivity). Why waste your entire Friday fighting for parking spaces and waiting in lines when you can make a few clicks Monday morning at the office and save just as much money.
Now, you might think this “Cyber Monday” is just for stores that sell toys, clothes, electronics, and other popular gift items, but you would be incorrect in your assumptions. Just because Cincinnati Dowel & Wood Products‘ online store doesn’t offer any 60″ LCD TV’s, kitchen appliances, or video games doesn’t mean we don’t get down with the Cyber Monday Madness!
To celebrate this post-holiday shopping fiasco, we are excited to announce that we will be offering 15% off your entire purchase on our online store. This discount is only valid for Monday November 28, 2011. Just enter the coupon code “15%OFF” in the coupon code section on the checkout page to receive the discount. You still must reach the $25 order minimum after the discount is applied, but with these savings I am sure that won’t be a problem. Just try not to max out your credit card.
So this year, in stead of going out and standing in line for 5 hours at Home Depot to get some shims or dowel rods, wait until Monday and then click on over to The Store at Cincinnati Dowel to pick up all the wood products you need at jaw-dropping prices. Just don’t let your boss see you!
Oh, and if you don’t have any need for wood dowels, plugs, or joinery items, but still want to capitlaize on some great savings at CDWP, check out our Cedar Toy Block Sets. They are American-made and make great Christmas gifts for children of all ages.]]>
In addition to the great weather, turning leaves, and of course, the great all-American sport of football, fall brings another great thing. Campfires. Whether its a small contained fire on your back patio or a gargantuan Ohio-State-Buckeye-after-a-loss bonfire, fall is the perfect time. Not too hot to sit by some burning logs and not to cold that you have to be on top of the flames. Now you are probably wondering how this pertains to Cincinnati Dowel. Well, not only do we also love Fall and campfires(away from our factory of course), but we have recently released a new product that is sure to heat up your campfire experience.
We now offer…Grilling Sticks! (Applause). Now when you are sitting out by the fire with friends and family you can whip out a pack of our beautiful 1/4″ x 30″ blunt-pointed wooden Grilling Sticks to grill hot dogs, roast marshmallows, or cook kabobs. They come in packages of 4, but depending on how big your fire is or how many friends you have, you might want to purchase several packs (I recommend an even 20 packs). If you are feeling ambitions and would like to order a full pallet worth, just give me a call and we can work something out.
Okay, enough talking about it, just click to The Store at Cincinnati Dowel and order a few packs before halftime is over and we will get them shipped to your residence as soon as possible.
There is no “I” in “Team”, but there is an “I” in “Grilling Sticks“, three of them actually.]]>
