Some might nice looking dowel's. YUP I'm like Charles or David, Believe it or not I have to do the old school way too. Plug cutter's in the drill press.
Or if I need something very long I have all the dowel cutters from LEE Valley. You can tweek these to thousands too.
Some day I may own a CNC??????
Have a Great Day!
