Just on eBay - there was a seller with 3/4" diameter dowels 36" long ($18.00 for 6) . However, you could also check for round pen blanks or cut off pieces to find smaller pieces for less.

Amazing job! If I had a girlfriend I'd totally build a miniature version of this as a marriage proposal ring box!
Beautiful! GREAT job, I make jewelry boxes too!
Now you should flock the inside of the box.
