As shown on these photos, I like to make my own large pulls or handles according to my needs from 10’’ long 2’’ X 3’’ spruce stud scraps – one of them is screwed on my planer base support while two others are at each end of my cutoffs bin.

They are easy and straight forward to make, and very rewarding. Each and every visitor in my shop keep touching them! The picture with my hand gives a sense to their size.

Find all the construction details and more pictures on this page of my blog.

Best,

Serge

I was about to say it looked like an old style telephone and flippedcracker had the same idea. Good use of scrap wood.
