A brief afternoon entertainment in a 28 degree shop, this dimmer switch knob of burly walnut is on it’s way to the State of Washington. The five leaf flower is intentionally irregular to mimic the real flower it was patterned after. The name of the flower is unknown to the Internet, surprisingly, because if you can’t find a fact you can count on several opinions. Not a clue in this case, but the picture sure was pretty. I had to stylize the stamen because they were long and fragile.

LOVE THE KNOB, how will it attach to the dimmer? Real knobs have grooves that grab the stem but can be removed. If it gets glued on they wont be able to remove it for service?

I only had you beat on the temp in the shop by a few degrees today. 32 in the shop here.

Really, nice carving! I’m thinking it’s pretty small being a swith knob. You must be a patient person. Hey, I’m in Washington State, are you sending it to me?????

Pat, there is a hole in the back of the knob that will press over the switch stem. It is carefully drilled a few thousandths undersize to be sure of a press fit. If for some reason the hole is too big, it can be shimmed with paper and a dab of white glue that won’t stick to the stem.

Brett, greater Seattle area. Maybe you’ll be visiting a friend’s house and spot it…! It’s about 2 1/4” diameter and 3/4” thick.

Beautiful Job Dan, I have no idea how anybody carves that well. Bravo.
