Do you have a project or projects you have built that have details you would change if you where to build it all over again? I'd like to hear about them or see them if you do. I’ll start by sharing mine.
A few years ago I built a dresser for my son and wanted to incorporate a unique pull design. The inlaid pulls look nice but aren't very practical. They are difficult to grasp and opening the drawer with one hand is nearly impossible due to the tension of the full extension drawer slides.
I will be building dressers for my daughters soon and will not be using this pull design again. This time I will create one large pull that can easily be grasped with one hand. I considered a recessed finger grab as wooden hardware can be prone to breaking. The pulls will have to be strong and durable, yet deliver that “craftsman flair” I’m looking for.
I have decided on this bent lamination design attached with contrasting dowel pins and long grain to long grain glue up.
