Don't use the router to make the dowel, the pieces are to small to cut.boxer said:I apologize. I was way too vague with my question. These cut offs are only 1/2"-3/4" square, and 3"-5" long. I really was looking for a quick way to round these off, other than sanding. The bullnose method just seemed a little dangerous to me. I read once that someone put wood in their 1/2" drill and held it to a stationary belt sander. Maybe I'll try that. Thanks for the responses.
