I was browsing through some old projects and came across some light chain pulls. Lights went off in my head. I can make some of those. I looked around and gathered some small pieces of scrap and started turning. My wife liked the first one so I ended up making one for every light and ceiling fan in the house. I got my niece to hold a towel up to take pic of the ones already hanging. The spot under then isn’t a dirty spot but the flash shadow. After turning I drilled a 1/8” hole in upper end and glued chain in with super glue.

Something to use some very small scrap pieces of wood. Another reason to keep everything.

Some are made of cedar and some of cherry. Some finished with super glue and some with Capt Eddie’s OB Shine Juice. All sanded to 320 girt

Nice. How did you hold the bead chain in the hole in the pull? I would like to try that as soon as my lathe gets here.

Knothead62 I drilled the hole out then took a small bottle of super glue and partially filled the hole. I then took a pair of side cutters and lightly gripping the link between the balls pushed it down till it would go no further. I tried needlenose pliers but didn’t werk well for me. On some I then ran a small bead around the top where chain enters the hole. Might have been over kill but oh well.
