Default Korking Ribbon-Please Help

OK I'm trying to kork ribbon today...I went to find my dowels and could only find ONE 3/8" one in my stash...I have a gazillion other sizes including about 10 1/4" I think I remember using 3/8" dowels last time I did this. Is that the size y'all use for your 3/8" ribbon? I don't want them to be super tight; I like them to be like the ones Nicole makes and that's what I had last time I made them...long before I found this board (but I think a friend must have needed dowels for something and I gave her the ones I had used for korking). Also do you just cut the 36" dowel in half so it fits in your oven?

Well I use 1/4, and yes I cut mine so they would fit in the oven.

I use 1/4 and 3/8 but I just buy them in packs of twelve already cut at Hobbly Lobby. They have tons of different sizes!

Thanks...I wish I had a Hobby Lobby...we have Michael's and Joann's both about an hour away and AC Moore about 1.5 hours away. I miss Hobby Lobby so much. Next trip to Home Depot (also an hour) I'm getting some more 3/8 and maybe I can track down someone to cut them in half for me...that is always a challenge...I think those guys actually hide when they see someone looking for them.
