Topic tags/keywords: drawer pulls carving refinishing

I am refinishing an old walnut dresser that is missing a few drawer pulls. What would be the best way to duplicate them besides hand carving them? Could one make them with a pantograph? Has anybody out there made anything like this? If you have what would you charge to make them?

Sorry David, these are above my pay grade. My own thought would be a CNC.

My first thought was also a CNC, but I don’t know anyone who has one.

If it were mine I would replace them w/ metal pulls, if you are not into carving them. Van Dyke Restorers has some wooden pulls but they are not the same as those.

When I refinished an old family heirloom. I ended up replacing the drawer and lock hardware with period correct repo’s from Horton Brass.
