My small dude (9yrs old) asked for some more mature drawer and door pulls than the ceramic animals that he has had since babyhood. He has a hockey thing going on in his room, so it was an easy choice what to do. Real pucks were too large so we cut 3/4” plywood rounds with a hole saw.
He did all the drill press work…..safety glasses and ear protection in tact. I made sure the table and workpiece were well clamped down. Aside from some smoke and burning, he did great.
pic #2 The ply was recycled from a plumbing repair to a shower drain…you can see the u-shaped cut for the pipe.
pic #3 We added texture to the edges of the puck, like a real one has, by gluing on some sawdust from the drilling out of the pucks.
Prime and paint, epoxy a machine nut in the middle and a logo sticker to cover the hole. This is his closet door done
Will post the entire set when finished.
He is really getting into this hobby, though he needs to work on his team loyalties…..Canucks before hated habs!!
Little update with the finished pics….it is a rainy lazy Sunday in Vancouver
The dresser and side table are just Ikea cheapies, but the cool pulls make it his own
He took the pics
