This instructable will show you how to make custom wooden knobs for a fraction of the cost of ugly, plastic store-bought ones. I recently had a need for a few knobs for an adjustable miter fence for my table saw. Rather than buy the plastic ones, I thought I'd make my own - always a better choice!
For each knob, you will need:
- A scrap of wood - preferably a hardwood like maple, oak,
mahogany, cherry, hickory, etc.
- A threaded insert
- A screw that fits the threaded insert (cut the head off
- Sanding/shaping tools like a belt sander, wood rasps,
- A drill press helps, but is not necessary
