I have made simple pulls by cutting a long piece of stock out of 3/4 and 1 1/2 wide. run one side on a cove bit for the finger pull side. The opposite corner can be a round over or other profile, cut them to the length you want at 30 to 45 degrees. glue and screw them on. Don’t glue if you think you might change them someday. Also you can use different wood to make a contrasting color

Here is an idea for a simple pull on my daughters project ” man box for her husband” The lid handle is just square but the drawer pull is undercut with a cove bit. Inset into the drawer front and glued in place.
