I have watched a few videos where guys have drilled and cut these out. I then came across one where the lucky guy has a cnc machine which can cut them out. I would think that this could then be done safely somehow on a router table with a pattern bit. Any suggestions on how to proceed would be very much appreciated. Pat

I don’t bother with star knobs when these are SO simple and quite as effective IMHO.

I just saw mine out with a hole saw and round over the edges. The best part of this method is the perfectly centered 1/4” hole!
