Looking for 1/8" walnut dowels.
K F on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: doesn;t he mean is this walnut the "Black Walnut" variety? like the lumber offered elsewhere.
Is the 5/8 walnut dowel black? I need the dark contrast for my project
Tommy on May 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, it is not black, per say, it is walnut colored. However, if you are using it in such a way that ask you see is the end grain, it is quite dark. If you want BLACK you will want to purchase some ebony and make your own dowel stock. The 5/8" walnut dowel against maple is a lovely contrast. I have used that in a number of projects. The color is a very dark red brown.
Can you cut the rod? I only need 28" of the ⅝" rod (for a wall hanging).
CJ T on Jun 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This might be a question for Rockler. Pretty easy for most of us to cut a dowel.
Can I use a dowel for my lamppost outside?
Patty on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These dowels are plenty strong and will take harsh use with appropriate finishing. I used mine as plugs for screw holes. But not sure exactly how you are going to use them on your lamppost. Hope his helps
would these work to bend in a steam Box?
Doug V on Mar 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have never tried this. I can attest to the fact that walnut over time will warp, twist or cup. That is why veneers are used instead of solid walnut. I used the dowels(28 inches long) and secured them to my project. As long as you secure them to your finished product in a timely fashion, you should be good.
