quarter inch wood dowels

There is a carpenter shop on the lateral, just across from Soriana in Chapala. I have bought dowling from them over the years.

Do you mean Real Ortega Madereria (lumber yard)?  Yes, they have some diameters of dowels, however, no 1/4" dowels there unfortunately.

If all else fails the local cojete maker uses what appears to be a 3 ft.- 1/4 in. dowel for those

 

Now, if his identity would just be revealed.

I know this will sound unbeivable, but I used to own a dowel making factory, using Pacific Northwest birch. The main function was to make stock for my wooden golf tee factory. So I have to tell you that 1/4 inch dowels are extraordinary difficult to produce. You might be better off looking at Bamboo, of which we have a large, unwanted grove. Wear good boots and pick anything you need. You will need some serious clipping shears, but I have those too. German steel baby!

Thank you, Chillin, but my needs coincide with the perfectly smooth wood of dowels. I`m afraid the branchlets of bamboo stalks would play havoc with the yarns in my warping process. Thanks for your generous offer.

Have you considered using steel rod, instead of wood?

Now there`s  an idea!  Can you recommend a place to find these?  Thanks!
