Fluted wooden dowels (not spiral)
    #11203393 - 10/07/09 10:38 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

SO i'm shopping online for dowels and I see fluted hardwood dowels
(Forgive me if this is a simple question) Do fluted dowels (grooves run parallel lengthwise down the dowel) instead of spiral grooved dowels work just as well for logs?
thanks

I have only seen the spiraled used, but I imagine a groove is a groove as far as rooting the myc on to it.

yeah i feel that soaked wood can only have so much advantage with dif. grooves before the mycelium is colonizing it just because it's hardwood and it's groove patterns

think there's a difference between birch and oak dowels besides the obvious difference in tree
