Continous grain, mitered door and drawer pulls
Larissa Huff and Robert Spiece's smart construction techniques make fashioning their small parts safe and repeatable.
Synopsis: Pulls are a final detail that can bring a whole piece together. The team of Larissa Huff and Robert Spiece at Lohr School of Woodworking has a safe, efficient method for safely cutting all the small parts in this set of continuous-grain, mitered pulls. A tablesaw sled with stop block, spacers, and a toggle clamp makes the work safe, accurate, and repeatable.
When we design and make custom furniture, we also design and make the pulls. We often leave pull design until deep into the building process so that we can use the physical piece for inspiration. Making those final details is exciting because they can be what brings the whole piece together—the icing on the cake, if you will.
Our pull designs vary, but one common denominator is batch production. We always need multiple pulls (which are typically made with tiny parts) and we want making them…
