How to Make Knobs for Shop Jigs

06-28-2018 10:20 AM by Dan Thomas | 4 comments »

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.” View on YouTube

Modern Computer Desk #10: Final touches: drawer knobs and legs

04-29-2017 02:21 PM by Ron Stewart | 1 comment »

Finding the right drawer knobs was almost as hard as finding the legs. We started out looking for something unique in color/material/texture (colored metal, crystal, art glass, polished stone, etc.) or form (rectangular, pyramidal, etc.) The number of available choices is staggering. In the end, we circled back to something small (to better fit the scale of the narrow drawers), with modern, clean lines that match the rest of the desk: Omnia Hardware Ultima II 9035 knobs that my wife found onl...

So many pies; So few fingers (post continued)

08-21-2013 01:01 PM by JustaLilJoinery | 2 comments »

I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin ...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #10: Building Dovetailed Drawers

06-05-2013 12:00 PM by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Dovetailed DrawersThere are many functional means of building drawers that will stand the test of time. I believe a fine case piece, such as the Dr. White’s Chest, warrants drawers assembled with dovetail joints. Watch this video to see my detailed description of building drawers with half-blind dovetail joints using the Leigh dovetail jig. This photo shows the drawers at the dry assembly stage. The joints are tight enough to handle the drawers prior to glue up. The end grain...

Drill press table and fence #1: Knobs!

02-22-2012 04:52 AM by Jimmy0x52 | 1 comment »

I did some glue up of the drill press table tonight and built part of the fence, more on those later. I did build my favorite thing to build right now – KNOBS! These will be to hold down the fence, stop block, etc on my drill press table I’m building. Really easy to make: Step 1: Find a fairly large hole saw bit (like > 2”)Step 2: Trace it out on a piece of wood and find the center – draw a line all the way across the circle and then draw a line bisecting it i...

Knob made using Oak Screw Chuck

01-31-2012 10:26 PM by unisaw2 | 1 comment »

Work is quiet right now, no remodel jobs at the moment. I am learning how to turn knobs with an Oak screw chuck. 3” diameter face plate with 1-1/4” thick piece of white oak attached with 3 sheet metal screws. In the center is a 2-1/2” #10 wood screw, washer, and lock washer to make the screw chuck.... . Attaching 1-3/8” maple square blank to screw chuck. Keeping the blank tight without snaping the steel #10 screw is a challenge....Roughing blank to cylinder. ....Turning curves with spin...

12-13-2011 05:07 PM by DaveTPilot | 1 comment »

Hello Guys and Gals, It has been a while since I’ve been on the site, or in the shop for that matter, due to the busy shedule of my new job. I just recently started working in the shop again and it feels great! As some of you may know, I love building shop made jigs and fixtures as well as finding inexpensive solutions to woodworking challenges. I am in the process of building a dovetail jig from plans in a ShopNotes issue. The jig uses threaded knobs. I didn’t have any in t...

Acrylic #1: First Attempt at Turning Acrylic

04-04-2011 05:53 AM by mcjibbin | 4 comments »

After I posted the Zebrawood tote and knob set project on LumberJocks, bigike (of LJs) sent me a message asking me if I’d like to be the first to turn some Acrylic plane knobs. He said he had a source for acrylic stock. I told him sure – not wanting to pass up a chance to expand my lathe skills and at the same time turn some unique plane knobs for Ike and myself. He said he’d mail me some, and I sent him my address. Sure enough, a few weeks later, I received a big box of...
