I had log lying around and replaced the plastic knob on my fly reel with a nice wooden one! I first drilled a hole to the right size. I don’t have a lathe so I carefully made a small block using a miter saw. There is probably a safer way but it’s all I have. I then rigged up my Dremel tool by clamping it upright. I used a sanding drum to shape it. I let it soak in polyurethane for a couple of hours then took it out. I let it dry and then dipped it back in, took it out, and let it dry over night. I’m a newbie but I think it turned out pretty good! I do not know what type of wood it is though, someone mentioned it could be white oak…?
