I don’t know what your making, but I would rabbet the whole dowel then glue in the pie cut pcs as needed.

Thank you jay,
I thought doing that, but the kerf width will take material and would´t look right,

Well don’t use the same piece that you cut out. The pie piece has to come out of fresh dowel.

That´s a good idea,
but I´m still thinking how to do it with out cutting the whole length of the piece and then glueing the “pie” piece
thanks jbay!

Handsaw to make the start of the cuts. Chisel to chopped out the waste. Sholder plane to smooth things out.

Or

Set up a sled to hold the dowel securely in place, run the dowel over a mortising bit in a router table, the square the corners with a chisel

or

Start with a square piece of stock, chop out the waste, then turn the remaining piece on the lathe until round.

Router and sled then chisel the corners out?

Cutting a rabbet in square stock with a router plane and chisels then turning it down like bandit said would be my preferred way.

Depends on how many you need. For one I would make it by hand with saw and chisel. For ten I would make a router sled.

Make a cradle for the rod and place a template over it and use a router and then clean up with a chisel.

Capture the rod between two 2×4s and tack a square 1 1/2” block to the end to keep the rod from rotating. Fasten one block down solid and take the other 2 by and fasten the template to it, locate the pattern and clamp it off, then use the router with a collet or freehand.

For me it would be as easy as locking it in my router mill, but if you hot glue a couple blocks on the ends you could use a router table and fence.

What if you start with square stock, cut the rabbets, then form the dowel with a roundover bit. When forming the dowel, leave a tail on each end to provide support for the next side’s cut.
