Topic tags/keywords: hardwood dowels pins plugs turnings squares woodworking

I am trying to learn more about what wood products woodworkers need or are looking for in stores, but you can’t find or you have to order online.

Products like, “I really wish they sold _ in the store.”

Or, “I would use [blank] all the time.”

Or, “It would be so much easier and save me time if they made [blank] that I could just buy.”

Or, “Too bad they don’t sell [insert species of wood here / size of dowel here].”

We’ve been manufacturing hardwood products for woodworkers for over 60 years from our factory in Ashland City, Tennessee (proud to be making them in the USA!). Our products are in major retailers and we want to be sure we are supplying woodworkers with the best selection of pro options. Open to any and all ideas here – including products we haven’t even made yet!

We appreciate all of your insightful recommendations.

Thanks for your help! Looking forward to swapping info and ideas here in this community!

Do you have a site we can order from? That might be the answer. Stores have such limited space, they don’t stock what doesn’t move fast. And we may be buying your products and not know it. Hardwood products covers a lot of ground, starting with pellets for stoves, toothpicks, and first quality lumber. Give a partial list of what you make please. Dowels in more species like cherry, walnut, ash, aromatic red cedar, white oak.

None. I don’t understand the intent of this thread other than to promote your business.
