I get my exotics from HighlandWoodWorking dot com.
nice stuff, good quality, very reliable - but the shipping will kill you - costs more than . . .


so I decided to roll my own:

typically I need 3,4,6 pcs - if you need thousands, rolling your own may not be a feasible option....

Did you notice this recent thread? It isn't clear that you can make consistent small diameter dowels with it, but I thought I would give it a try to see what happens. I need some 1/4 inch dowels.

My co-worker/slash woodwork mentor has giving me www.bearwood.com as his go to supplier for dowels. Told me they are far cheaper than anywhere he's found.
