Always in need for jig knobs, I found this clever way to make my own using scraps, carriage bolts, T-nuts and two sizes of hole saw.

With these 2’’ in diameter, don’t you think my jigs will look store bought?

Find all construction details and photos on this page of my blog.

Best,

Serge

I like it! Any tips for efficiently but safely routing the roundover on such a small piece?
