Kinda surprised no one has recommended Rose City. That's the company most businesses that sell cedar shafts get theirs from. Check them out. If you can swing buying 100 you get a better price. They also offer lots of options, straight, guaranteed within 5 oz weight, pre-coated, etc.

Also, do you prefer Cedar, fir or another wood? and why?
I've made arrows from pine dowels in the past with obvious problems so
prefer cedar myself. I'm also willing to pay extra to have them
pre-splined and guaranteed straight.
Note: one company sells cedar shafts for $6 per dozen but will not
guarantee straight grain or straight shafts... obviously I passed them
