We have always carried hardwood dowels and they have always been problematic: their higher moisture content makes them highly unstable; they vary in color and grain and sometimes even arrive at their destinations in altered shapes or dimensions. Being a picky bunch, we are then forced to discount the rejects severely or relegate them to the garden for tomato service. The ones that pass muster continue to be popular, however, probably because hardwood dowels are increasingly difficult to find in stores, and ours are better priced and truer than those available from other suppliers.
The dowels commonly available at local lumber yards and hardware stores are often from an Indonesian species called ramin and are seldom close to specified sizes, whereas the ones offered here are all American hardwood and are checked for accuracy before they leave the shop to ensure that they will thread properly.
All dowels are 36" long.
