Default One small part needed

My neighbor needs this one wood part made.
Are there sources for small parts such as this that I may be able to match or nearly match the parts profile?

I have a lathe but it's 70 lbs and my back is complaining.

The desk has a rail the width of the desk that is held up by these tiny parts and only one is missing.

Ralph...any chance you could do this with your drill press...or a drill mounted between two stands...?

A source of small parts even if not identical would be a benefit. Maybe replace all of the parts.

not an exact match, but if replacing em all is an option:

12 Piece Spindle 2 inch x 3 4" Birch Wood Furniture Crafts Woodworking Style 1 | eBay

the Bay.. Crafts/woodworking/supplies and tools then do a search for "Spindle" to see what they got

Now we're talking! Exactly the sort of lead I'm after!
I'll print out the picture and ask. The price is right for sure.

If there are any schools with an IA class give it to the teacher and let him have one of his students do one as a project.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
