March, 2014—Five cypress cut-offs were planed and glued. Box was sanded to 220, followed by a Minwax stain. Knob is a round wooden bead from a craft store. The hole in the bead was expanded to 3/16-inch, which accepted a chop-stick from a Chinese restaurant. A receiving 3/16-inch hole was drilled in the drawer front to attach the knob.

Finished with light coats of gloss spray lacquer. Felt glued to the inside bottom of the drawer. Dimensions in inches are 4-1/4 tall, 6-1/4 wide, and 3-3/4 deep (including the knob). I’m still have fun making these.

Nice one Art. I really like the idea of drilling out the bead and using a chopsick to attach it. Let me ask you, did the bead have a flat spot on one side and if not did you sand it flat?
