I couldnt find a cool looking knife switch to save my life, so i made one. The tea pot was purchased at ARC thrift for $2.70 you will also need small wood screws a 1 and 1/2 in machine screw and some 1/4 in thick wood.
Remove the handle from the tea pot and straighten out the curve. Leave the bends at each end. Three quarters of the way down from the hinged end mark your first cut also mark off the curved edges and where you will drill your hole at the end of the long piece. Now make your cuts.
