A 6" x 6" piece of wood of the required length would need to be planed down to a dowel of 6" diameter. A 6" diameter dowel is not a standard size carried in DIY stores. A local woodworker/carpenter would be able to produce the dowel if you can't do it yourself.

What is formula to calculate steel rod weight per inch?

Steel rod weight per inch.... this depends on the thickness and shape of the steel rod. The density of steel is around 500 pounds per cubit foot, so, for example: If the rod is cylindrical and has a diameter of 1/2 inch, each "inch" of the rod is a cylinder with length L=1. The volume of this cylinder is found with pi*r^2*L. Since diameter = .5in, radius = .25in. pi*.25^2*1 = about .2in^3 or 1/5 cubic inch. Now, a cubic inch is about 5.8*10^-4 cubic feet, so... 500lb/ft^3 * 5.8*10^-4 in^3/ft^3 = .28935 pounds per cubic inch. We have one fifth cubic inch, so multiply that by .2... and each inch of our rod weighs .05787 pounds, which is pretty much 3/50 pounds. Coincidentally, 3/50 of a pound is just about an ounce, so our cylindrical steel rod of diameter 1/2 inch pretty much weighs one ounce per inch!
