Where do you get your hardwood and exotic dowels?

I’d like to score some padauk, purple heart, african blackwood and some light colors.

I get mine from Edensaw and Superior Hardwoods. I also get dowels from Rockler if I am placing an order otherwise. I have made some dowels too if I need a small amount of something special, although I am not really fond of making them. Now that I have a lathe, making larger dowels will be a lot easier.

turn the dowel on your new lathe, it will be good practice :)
