We have been a distributor of Cincinnati Dowel for over 20 years. We find products are quality, their service is on time, and their staff is most helpful. They are a pleasure to have as a partner of Rapid Start, LLC.

Cincinnati Dowel and their team are Awesome!

Bert Dampier (Missouri Cooperage)

Cincinnati Dowel provides consistently high quality products from the finest timbers available. Jerry and the team have been excellent in dealing with our needs since the late 90’s. Their products are the foundation on which our business was built and we hope to partner with them for many more years to come.

Mic Dryden (Plug It Wood)

I have been affiliated with Cincinnati Dowel in some capacity since 1993. Their knowledge, quality and service in the wood products industry is at the top of the list and I would recommend them for any dowel, turning or related item you may need. They have a vast inventory of standard dowels, buttons, plugs and turnings but do shy away from them if you have a custom item as they have the knowledge and know how to get the job done.

Dewey Bunker (United Forest Traders)

We have been doing business with Cincinnati Dowel for well over 20 years. Great company to work with, great customer service, quality products, and good lead times. Whenever there are any questions, their staff is super friendly and helpful. Highly recommend for quality domestic hardwood dowel rods.

Dwayne Hershberger (Walnut Creek Lumber)

Great company! Friendly staff that is easy to work with and puts its costumers first.

Jerimy Fletcher (Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc.)

Wonderful company to work with - fast, reliable service with each order. Customer service and communication are a top priority. Provides variety of quality items.

Paula Canter (Speyside Bourbon Cooperage)

Just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone involved for their hard work on my dowel orders throughout the years. I really appreciate the smoothness of the hard maple dowels. I’m glad to see that eyes are on the quality of the products. Your company makes my company look good. I am a crab mallet maker! We sell to crab carry-out businesses, weddings, sit down crab feasts, and even candy shops at the beach (Dolle’s Candy). Please keep this level of excellence through the upcoming years. I would like to personally thank Eric for overseeing my orders. 

Mark Mister (Mr. Woodsmith)

We have been dealing with Cincinnati Dowel & Wood Products since the late 90’s.  They have consistently provided us with quality product and competitive prices. They have expediated product to us when we have experienced shortages. One example that took place not too long ago involved them shipping us 15,000pcs of ½” flat head red oak plugs to cover us when we experienced an inventory shortage. They have been a good partner of ours. Their service has been stellar. Even during the dark days of the pandemic, and shortages were becoming the norm, we did NOT experience any shortages on the plugs & buttons the Cincy Dowel supplies us with.
