Does anyone have a line on mission/craftsman style knobs in smaller sizes or, alternately, a basic idea of how to make them by hand? I’m looking for the “pyramid” style knob and I’m not having trouble finding that style but as this is for a smallish clock I need something around 3/8”-1/2”
I’ve checked the usual local outlets for hardware including Rockler and Woodcraft, tried online with Van Dyke and searching every way that I could think of without success. Everything I’m finding is 1” – 1 ¼” at the smallest which is way too large for a clock door that only has 1 ¾” stiles.
I’m building the clock in an Arts & Crafts style in QS White Oak. The knobs don’t have to be pewter/iron, I’m open to wooden as well and may have to resort to making them myself but on that scale I’m not sure how to go about it. Much too small and would get my hands way too close to a saw blade. Possibly a jig/fixture of some sort or maybe trying to work them by hand with a good sharp knife and sandpaper?
I dunno, any suggestions?
