1/2" ebony dowel

I need a 1/2" ebony dowel about 4-6" long. I have some larger pieces I could turn down, but it seems wasteful.

African Blackwood would work too.

Any sources?

You can buy ebony pen blanks from PSI or The Woodturner's Catalog then turn it

There is no app for experience

Dang! I didn’t think of the pen blank idea. And I searched for hours and didn’t discover the dowel site.

Thanks you guys!
