These knobs and hold-downs are made from Poplar (I love Poplar), and the knobs use 1/4” ‘T’ nuts for the ‘threads’. These are used on several tables (assembly and machine) in the shop along with ‘T’ track to secure items to the work surface.
Plan available to anyone who wants them…..

Nice jigs! So how do you make your knobs?

Drbyte & Ken90712,
The knobs were made on a carving machine. There were ‘several’ attempts, which added to the kindling pile.
They were quite a challenge for me, in that I’m relatively new to this, and there are many different angles and dimensions to consider. Thanks you both for your comments…..

I like the rounded-dot effect on your knob. A nice and clever touch! I’ll keep that in mind for my next sets.
Thanks for sharing.

Best,

Serge

At first look I though “Nice idea, he used left over cast iron outdoor faucet knobs”. Then I saw that you made them, now I’m impressed! Awesome job! I wish I had the time to make such nice knobs.

Lucas,
‘Time’...... Well out here in the boonies in the winter months there is LOTS of that… Spring is now here, and SWMBO is siphoning workshop time at an increasing rate…..... Today is planing day, got couple hundred ft of nice Poplar, and the planer is working it’s heart out…. Then possibly I’ll have time for a real project…

Hey Henri, those are really nice.

And heck, you even painted the knobs.

You could maybe try some rubber dip on the ends for even more gription, but hey, I bet they work just fine.

I built some of these from scratch also, but they don’t look near as nice as these…... well done.

Have your say...
