Made a tall thin cabinet about 15 years ago.

It had a homemade pull made in my shop. Qak and walnut.

Well the knob only lasted 15 years.

Could have glue repaired, but lost the parts.

Today I made a replacement.

Base is bubinga.

Pendent is afromosia.

Brass screws.

Feels real strong. Much stronger then it looks in the photos. Real good fit on the screw shank.

small turquiose bead from China, fastened to the afromosia with a very small silver pin (.031) with a brass sphere head.

Very nice.
Looking at your many projects, I appreciate very much the “art and fine craft” touch from your gifted hands.
You really have the imaginations, skill and patience. (hope I spelt correctly…The words patient & patience always make me to refer to dictionary).

Take care and work safe.

Dan;

Great job on the pull. Very nice looking.

I also like the way you presented the photo with the black back round and text.

Very professional looking.

this is very nice indeed : ) Had you already tried a wooden cross pin instead of the brass screws ?

Tried a dowel but it didn’t seem strong enough. Need to get a 1/8” brass rod.

When I get it completed, I’ll update the photos,
