    You might check your local Woodcraft Store, or get them online.

      Birch dowels are the most common available ones. Amazon sells birch. I have purchased maple dowels and other items from Casey's Wood Products. They have great service.

      Woodcraft also sells dowels of various species.

      So what are you making?.

          Our Walmart sells birch dowel rods, as does Michaels, Lowes and HD. To get walnut, you will probably need to order on-line. A quick Google shows that Rockler, Woodcraft and Klingspor carry them, along with other species.

            If I need something beside ***** or oak, I go to Woodcraft. I don't order them - when I get by a Wood craft store (about once every 3 months or so), I just pick up a few.

            I, also have plug and tenon cutters. If I just need some short ( 1 - 3 inches), I just cut them out of what ever wood I want to use.

              I don't have any history with them.
