If you prefer a more rounded shape, cut strips the dowel length times 3.14, and add 1-1/2-in for an overlap area. The 9-in dowel, for example, would call for strips 29-3/4-in long and the 12-in dowel would use 39-3/16-in strips. For a 6-in dowel, cut strips 20-3/8-in; for 8-in dowels, cut 26-5/8-in strips; for 10-in dowels, cut 33-in strips; for 14-in dowels, cut 45-1/2-in strips; and for 16-in dowels, cut 51-3/4-in strips.
Tighten both the screw eye and panhead screw just enough to hold the strips against the dowel -- any tighter and you could split the wood.
