Like a lot of woodworkers, I have a hard time throwing away the scraps left over from a project. That was the case recently when I needed a couple of handles for a project. They are made from plywood and are fairly small.
In ShopNotes No. 96, we showed how a drawer joint bit in your router table is a fast and easy way to make drawers in a short amount of time. The key to how this works is the bit and its unique stepped profile. What it allows you to do is cut both halves of the joint at the same bit height, all you need to do is change the fence.
I have built several storage cabinets with a number of drawers to help organize small pieces of hardware and other items. The problem was I did not want to buy a separate pull for each drawer.

Do you know how easy it is to build your own wooden drawer pulls? Well it is. Once you know the basic steps you can go crazy and customize the pulls to suit your situation. Follow along (after you click on the link) to the free step-by-step instructions for this project.
