Knobs

Post  Tinker on Wed Sep 26, 2012 9:08 am

Hiya
I've blogged my process for making lampworked cabinet knobs. It was surprisingly easy and I'm delighted with the results so I thought I'd put something together for anyone on the fence about giving this a go. I did it without rollers, and I've found some ebay sellers with the stuff you need so gimme a shout anyone if you fancy giving this a go! Pics of the finished knobs are at the bottom of the post.

Could you branch out into mushrooms from there? Now I wish that I had some drawers or cupboards which need knobs!

Yes absolutely! And it seems like it would be easy enough - off to give it a go in a minute.

Lol I feel the same way 'where can I put them?!!' This is my answer Very Happy

Those are so lovely and those chests are perfect for them. What a great Christmas present! How do you attach them?

Thanks all! They attach by little screws

P1060774 by Kat Newman, on Flickr

These will fit 'normal' furniture, the screw is shown screwed all the way in. I want to use them on the sort of little drawers you get at Ikea and I suspect the ones at boxylady are the same and these screws will be too long, so I've ordered shorter ones and am offering to swap them at checkout on etsy - I wish you could do options on Etsy, would make life so much easier - that and bulk photo upload...

I think they might be some testing for some new features on etsy, I've been using the Treasury button. I'm sure I've seen one for options I'll have a root around. Ahh found it, it's a prototype like the treasury button
