searching for 1/4"thick,rounded log pieces

Finely found out how to post,thanks for putting up with this slow computer lerning granny.
I do rustic crafts as family gifts,wich are very in demand and works with my budget.
Used to buy3ft redwood garden sticks at Lowes but the comp
in Ca has quit,and no one knows how or where to get any.

Last year on HGTV they showed a bedroom made out of rounded log cabin wood wall siding,but cant find the show anymore to figure out the supplier.
Contacted log cabin companies to see if they have craft supply kits etc but they use there own for crafts,or only have long 8-18ft thin logs that come in lg amounts,to build cabins.

Anyone knows a place that sell 6"-? size pieces,
anyewere from 1"- 4"wide and 1/4-1/2"thick?

Have not found a sawmill around here either,and i don't travel far anymore to the next city.

Tried cedar boards cut with tablesaw in 2" or so pieces and sanded them half round torward the edges,but it is too hard on my lungs anymore.(Yes and I wear a mask)
Thanks for any help or info .

I would use a draw knife and hand plane rather than sanding , it will give it a hand hewn rustic look

Hello dena747,
Do you have to use cedar? Could you not buy small diameter dowling and with a hand plane flatten two sides?

Problems come up if the dowling has rough grain or knots, so choose carefully.

I will look around my neck of the woods, so-to-speak and see what I can find.
