After building a storage cabinet for my shop I decided to make my own pulls to prevent the cord from my electric tools to catch. Most store bought pulls don’t meet this particular criteria.
I ripped two 3/4’’ thick 18’’ long sticks, 1’’ wide, according to my actual needs.
I used a 3/8’’ diameter round nose bit in the router table to mill the gripping profile of the pulls.
At the miter saw I cut one end at 20° then the other after spinning the piece over 180°, keeping the pull flat against the fence. To learn more about the miter saw cradle shown, click here.
No electric cord will catch on these pulls for sure.
