  • square dowell for chess pieces

    I just got back to scrolling after a 6 year hiatis. I lived in New Mexico and had a local source for square dowell. Now I'm in California and cannot find a local source. Does anyone know where I could find this wood online? I need different types of wood for contrasting chess pieces, what I used in NM was about 1 3/4" square X 30". Please if you know of a source for this type od stock, let me know.

    Thanks

    Why not just rip them yourself? Or if you don't have a table saw get a friend to do it for you.

      I know the Big Orange Retail Giant has them. They have poplar and maple and oak.

            A big thank you

            Thanks everyone. I now have some options. Woodworkers source looks good for me. Lots of variety. I ordered some wood and will soon be scrolling some chess sets. I just tuned up my RBI Hawk and I'm ready to go. Again, thanks everyone. I know where to go for help now.

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

              Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
