  • 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.

            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.

              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
