The Only Way to Get a Wood Dowel Under 1/16 Inch Diameter. If you've ever needed a wood dowel under 1/16 inch diameter for a miniature or scale model project, you know they just are not available. (Ship modelers: remember those tree nails you couldn't find?). The only way you can get them is to make them yourself with our Draw Plate, which is designed specifically for shaving wood. How it works: the steel plate has a series of tapered holes which range from approximately 3/32 inch dia. to .020 inch dia. To get a 1/32 inch dia. dowel, for example, start with a 1/16 inch dowel or a 1/16 inch x 1/16 inch square strip. Insert the end into the smallest hole the dowel or strip will fit into and pull from the opposite side. As you pull, the steel edge of the hole shaves the wood. Then go to the next smaller hole and repeat. Continue like this until you have the size you need. Made of hardened steel, approximately 5-1/2 inches x 1 inch x 3/32 inch.
