I was just going to ask the same question.

Well I used about 6 dowels for 2 -2.5" korker bow. When I cut them I count 6 loopys each which I end up cutting 6 korkers on each dowel. So thats about 36 pieces total and 18 for each korker bow. Make sense. Plz someone tell me if this sounds right. Heres a pic
