A Simple Door Pull of Copper and Woodcomments (24) September 12th, 2011 in blogs
I thought I'd share this idea for a door pull I made recently. It's no more than a copper rivet hand-hammered around a square of wood, and epoxied into a tapered hole.
Here's how I did it
With the wood clamped to the copper rivet using a c-clamp, I hammered down all four sides of the rivet's head, where it protruded past the small wooden block. This serves to pinch the wood into place. Now with the pull clamped to your bench, you can add a small chamfer around all four edges of the wooden block and install. It's that simple! See my photos for more detail.
