Made some star knobs, and I’d thought I’d pass along the template if anyone is interested.

I made the template on the computer, so I could easily and quickly drill perfectly spaced holes, without drawing 100 lines each time. I used a 1” hole saw for the bottom pieces, but I think next time I’ll just use a 1” dowel. That’ll speed the process up even more and just make them cleaner all around. There is T-nut sandwiched (and counter-bored) between the two parts.

By the way, the reason it has two hole saw sizes (2 1/8 & 2 1/2), is just for different knob sizes.

If you want the template, PM me your email address.
