Hey, guys! I just put a new post up on the Rockler Custom Cabinet Knob Turning Kits. These kits are new and let you make a wooden knob with some nice metal accents in two different varieties, modern or traditional. I used the traditional kit and turned some walnut knobs for a project I have coming up.

If you’re interested in seeing what the kit is all about and how I made mine then you can head over to my Turn Custom Wooden Cabinet Knobs on a Lathe post on

It was a quick project and these are going to look great on my upcoming sideboard. If you are a turner then you’ll understand how easy these are, because I’m a complete novice and was able to get good results :)

Nice work, did not know they make kits for them.

I really like those. Being able to match a knob to project is a really great idea.

Thanks, guys! These are brand new kits so that is why you haven’t seen them before. Just went on sale late Feb.
