Delivery was timely (2 days) during XMas Rush, Great!
Quality: finish uniform, ready for finish, color match among dowels is very good. 5 of 100 were curved due to warping, OK for this purpose. Of these, 3 were also tapered at one end (each) to less than 3/8" diameter (also OK for this purpose. My opinion is this is a good price for a reasonably standard commodity, and I recommend it for other small-batch producers.
