Custom Wooden Pull Handles #1: How to make custom Drawer Pulls

1300 days ago by bohnsai | 15 comments »

This blog is to show others how I created all the Walnut Pulls on my Clothes Hamper Hider I searched the Lee Valley and Rockler (among others) catalogs for hours trying to find something I liked for the furniture piece but didn’t find anything that suited my fancy. I found some maple and cherry handles that looked like they might work but I wanted walnut for contrast. Would you believe it? Walnut pulls don’t exist! So I decided to make some of my own. I went ahead and bought...

Sketchup Shorts #3: Going to the Lumberyard - Virtually

1867 days ago by PurpLev | 8 comments »

My Tools #4: A new handle for my 3' crosscut saw

1472 days ago by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

When my chainsaw broke the other day, halfway through a log, I reached for a secret weapon I’ve not really brought out into the light in the exactly 6 months (as of today) since it arrived: my 36”, German, hand-hammered, regular-tooth, one-man crosscut saw from Traditional Woodworking. Here are pics from early October that I’ve had squirreled away. The saw was so much bigger than I’d even imagined, and I had imagined it even bigger than I would ever have imagined it to...

Each of them has come along as a result of a custom hatmaker asking for one, and so I have met some cool folks that are passionately working at something they love doing. Hopefully, all of us will get tired of ball caps at some point and look for a style that is better looking, and actually...
