I prefer to make my own dowels for several good reasons.I can make any size dowel in any length from any wood.My system is simpler and certainly less expensive than the commercial dowel-making tools that are limited to only a few sizes.
The drawings show the complete tooling required: a hardwood block and your table saw.The block size isn't critical, but it should be thick enough to clamp easily to the saw's rip fence and long enough to cover the sawblade in use.
This last point is important because you'll need to reach across the saw to withdraw the finished dowel...
