Tell us about yourself!
It isn't terribly important. I kinda figured you just stuck them in and cut them to the "about right" length. :) I have done that before (with varied results).I am planning on making this as a Christmas present for my brother. Originally I was going to make it for myself but I realized it would be perfect for him. I'll try to get pictures up when I complete it.(P.S. This is by far the best and easiest design I have found. and it gives plenty of room for adjustments and improvisations. Thanks a bunch!)

What length do you cut the dowels to? You don't say in the image, you just say diameter. :-?
