Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jezze A good purchase
These dowels were purchased online and picked up at the store. I had purchased some at the store but I needed a bunch more and they cost less on-line. I, personnally, believed that the dowels ordered on-line were slightly better than the ones in the HD store. They were 1/4" in diameter and they fit very nicely in a standard pegboard. In fact, the online dowels had a better "snug" feel in the pegboard vs the store bought ones. The store bought dowels seemed to have a little play in them and did not fit as snuggly as the on-line dowels. If purchased again (in quantity) I would order on-line again. I do wish, though, that I could have gotten a volume discount considering that I purchased close to (50) 48" lengths.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teebone exatly what I was looking for
the dowel rod was straight and of high quality wood. It is hard to find 1/8 in dowel rod in 36 inch length that is as straight as this is. I use this to build model ships and model train layouts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mekaaka Just what I needed
These dowels work great for my 3 foot Centerpieces because they go all the way from the top to the bottom to keep the Cemterpiecefrom bending. The only downside Is that I purchased 20 and about 4 of them were straight and all the others were bent and one was broken but I found a fix which was to Hot glue the bend straight down onto the card stock and it won't bow too bad or won't be noticeable.

These are fantastic for making arrows. The straight grain and high flexibility makes them great for use as arrow shafts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HalloweenFanatic Perfect
I set up a haunted yard every year and use dowels to stake tombstones into the ground; they both hold better than the included small stakes, and give or break if walked over, unlike metal rods, to help avoid injury. These are both thicker AND cheaper than the dowels I used to purchase, and all I have to do is cut them to the size I want. The extra width meant less breakage from high winds during a storm, while still conforming to my safety standard, and the price allowed me to replace ones that had broken from the years before without breaking my bank. I will definitely buy these again when needed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wjt These are not 1/8'' as described
I order 1/8'' x 36'' white birch dowel rods from Home Depot. The order was filled through Waddell wood products. When receiving them I could tell just by looking at them this is not 1/8''. I measure them with digital calipers and they are much larger, ranging from just over 1/8'' to almost 5/32''. These are not 1/8'' dowels. I sent an email to Waddell about their quality on these that came from China through them, never got a reply. I picked up some 1/8'' dowel rods from Walmart (these are Poplar) and they all measured 1/8'' and a label that said Made in USA. Waddell needs to get their act together.

This wooden dowel is the best dowel you can ever buy. You can do all sorts of stuff with it i.e. build a catapult and take over the world with it. Good for all purposes.
