Brass Screw Eyes - Small : I need a eye screw to mount into the side of a 3/8" cedar dowel. I am thinking the second one from the bottom would work and not go all the way through the shaft?

It depends on how much weight or stress will be put upon the screw-eye. If only a light amount of stress will be applied it will probably work. I would recommend pre-drilling a "start hole" for inserting the screw eye, with a tiny drill bit (slightly smaller than the size of the shank of the screw eye.)When I used these screw eyes I was hanging a small(1 1/2")wooden acorn from a ribbon. the screw eye was inserted into the top of the acorn.
