You can also try just making a draw plate by drillling a hole the size of the dowel you want to make in a piece of steel plate. You then just take a slightly larger dowel, sharpen the end and hammer it through the hole.

I do not think you will be able to hammer a 3/32” dowel. It is too small for that.

When I need dowels like that I use bamboo kabob skewers. It depends what you are using them for.

I’ve been using bamboo kabob skewers as drawbore pins for years! Found in the camping equipment at Wal-Mart … just can’t beat 3600+ drawbore pins for $1.88.

Suggestion:
Put any TOO LARGE dowel in the chuck of a hand drill or DP, and then sanding-to-size becomes easier AND the dowel stays round!... ;-)

Mike – I was going to mention the hand drill as you did above, but I did not want to break character by suggesting the use of a power tool … LOL!

Tennishoe, I have ash and maple in stock so I’ll see if I can make some today. Can they be shorter than 36”
