My YouTube video shows how to make knobs for shop jigs. It’s geared to the newbie woodworker (of course), but probably anyone can benefit from it.

“Detailed, step-by-step instructions. Why spend money to buy knobs for shop jigs? This is how I make my own knobs. I show you 5 different knob shapes, and a couple of different attaching options. And I even take a stab at putting a finish on one knob.”

You mean you polished your knob? Sorry, couldn’t resist. The video and info are great by the way. Thanks so much.

LOL. Believe it or not, I didn’t think of that one. I must be slipping. :)

Thanks, and you’re welcome!
