Some of the shops I like the best have a uniform set of drawer and cabinet pulls in them. Much like a kitchen. I wanted to do the same. My requirements were: different, large and cheap. All of the large prefab drawer pulls I found were way too much money. My shop cabinets consist of homemade, box store bought and garage sale cheap. I like pine (cheap and easy to work with and the knots look good). I found seven foot metal closet rods at the box store that had a nice coat of white paint and it was go time. I left the drawer fronts unfinished to go with the shop walls. No fumbling around for the drawers now….....
