Star knob jig
make your own star knobs

This jig is inspired by our buddy Gerry TheDane, in fact I’m a Dane, so there are a wee confusion here… ;-D
It was a star knob jig, he had just made, I found it so cool, that I had to make one…
Thank you for the inspiration Gerry.

Gerry found the jig on Youtube, where a guy called Christofix had put it up in a video, thank you Christofix.
As much as I appreciated the video, I found that I had to go forward and backwards, again and again to make a copy, also I thought it could be simplified a wee bit – so I decided to share my build, hoping it can make it more easy to make one.

So jump to the blog if you are curious now:

1. Star knobs!
2. Ohh yes and a lot of this.
3. The new part.
4. Making the jig.
5. Jig in use.
6. Just another jig on the wall…

Perhaps this can inspire you to make your own knobs.

Smiles, yes this can really become a money saver. If they need to be more prof, they can get a coat of spray paint.
