Shopmade Drawer Pulls

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.

See all the details and more photos from this page of my website.

Best,

Serge

I looked at the pictures first, before I read your text. The whole time I was thinking…”I think they would look better if he’d cut the angles the other way.

Then I read the text and saw this. “No electric cord will catch on these pulls for sure.”

Pure Genius. ;-)
