This 3" hard maple dowel was...
This 3" hard maple dowel was exactly what I was looking for. I cut it down into 2 each of 2-1/2", 5" and 7-1/2" to use as a push rod (called a follower) in my homemade cheese press. Needed a really hard wood and this fit the bill perfectly! Cut nice and smooth on the chop saw. Thanks for carrying this item!

These very large 2-1/2" diameter rods were what I needed for a project, but they are not a single piece of solid wood. Rather, they are a lamination with a solid 1" board across the center, and smaller boards completing the circle on either side. That made for an aesthetic difference for my end grain application that I wish I would have known about before I ordered them.

A particular project requiring modifications to a pair of wood brackets for the front porch of an antique house. This large diameter dowel is not easy to find as a stock item, so purchasing this avoided requiring a custom-turned item.
