Home made walnut handles made for my new work(PC)-desk. Finish is water based laquer.
The making process was ’’deccission making’’ on the way. Intention was to make them with router table -more rounded shape, but ended up with tablesaw and disc sander with this design.

Very nice Majuvla!
I know they will look better than purchasing manufactured ones.
You can make them to match you desk this way.
Well done! Can’t wait to see your desk when you finish it.

Those are nice!

I see a bit more than just table saw and sander work there, did you use a router for the finger groove?

Either way, you did a good job. Most people would just buy handles.

Hey that’s what we do! Make successful changes to our original plans! I use my disk sander more than I though I would for things just like this !!! Good work around and fine end result.

Nice work Ivan. The water based laquer brings out the grain nicely. Look forward to the finished project.

Those are great looking pulls. I made similar on my night stands project and remember specifically how challenging the task was. I’ll look forward to you posting the completed desk.
