Turning Drawer Pulls Without A Lathe

drawer pulls

Most of the time we think of either buying drawer pulls (me) or if we do make our own, we look to the lathe to make anything as such. Doing so not only takes having a lathe, but usually something that small is done on a mini-lathe or is too much trouble on a big one.

This is a unique trick done by Christian Becksvoort, a real pro. This is how he used to turn his drawer pulls before he worked with a lathe. You will appreciate this trick.

DO YOU HAVE a woodworking project or tip that you would like to submit to WooDesigner and get it added to our site? Then go to the contact tab below OR at the top of this page and let me know. Just make sure you are able to give us step by step instructions on it, as well as images as you see here, and we will put it on this site just like you have read on this page! As long as it is clear and concise like you just saw, it will go up. Your name will be credited to the project, as where you live. (Please include that.) Also include the type of lumber you use for the design. We look forward to hearing from you! (Take note that the tip and images and instructions have to become ours. I do hate that so much but in today’s society so many will sue, and yes, you can sue for a lot of money over images.) The tips will need to include YOUR IMAGES that you take. They can’t be images from somewhere online. Remember, we have to go through these images and if they aren’t your own, we will not be able to use them. This is illegal and it won’t be tolerated and you will be banned from this community by being blocked. We can get sued for this, and just one bad apple can ruin our community.
