wood dowels are indispensable part of any wood crafter's world. They have held the world of creativity and functionality together. They have bonded not only the wood pieces but also our day to day life as well. No, it is not at all exaggeration. The chair we use to sit in and the table we use to dine on, all are integrated with the help of dowels. Dowels are very miniscule wood made structure used to hold wood furniture things. Whether it is that wooden toy you used to play with when you were kid or the birdhouse you recently purchased.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

In woodcraft, the place of dowels is irreplaceable. To an outsider, these may seem which can be totally done away with but a true wood crafter knows their importance in wood craft. Earlier these were made by hands and the process was very time consuming. Currently, these dowels are made by machines. The manufacturing process has become painfully easy now. The technician just sets the machines for different parameters and it produces dowels of different sizes and diameters. As the name suggests, the dowels are made of wood only. The cutting knives of machine combine the hollow clamps of wood and shaped them into dowels.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

They are very versatile and can be used for any wood crafting purpose. These can be painted for various uses in wood crafting. These can be made of Birch, Pine and Cherry. If you are looking for wood dowels for your project or hobby, you may need them in different sizes and shapes. You may want to use a wooden dowel for a flag hosting on your wooden fort or for doll house decorations. You can use them for spindles and for decorative poles. Apart from that, they can be use to make axis in wooden toys, bars, rope handles and game pieces.

The smaller wooden dowels are of 1-1/4″ size whereas the larger ones are of 2-1/2″ to 12″. Depending upon your requirement, you can purchase them from any wood craft store and online also. These are very inexpensive but very functional. These can give new dimensions to your hobby and help you to take your skills to new levels.
