Default I really like how they made these door handles

Guys , I have never seen this done before . I'm at the doctors when I see this custom built desk with no drawer pulls , but instead there's slots that they've routed in to grab onto .
I'm really liking this idea and want to use it wherever I can , like a future computer desk.
If it wasn't done on a CNC , I'm assuming they had a template to follow and hogged out the slot with a plunge router , then once they got the desired depth , they followed up with another bit to route out the deeper part of the inside perimeter.
However it's done I want to try it myself someday . Kind of nice also , as you don't have drawer pulls to get caught on your clothing , plus no additional cost for drawer pulls .
What do you guys think ?

Rick I have seen this often and come to think about it a lot of the time it's been in a doctors office. Y'all are just now catching up.

Rick, I don't see that being deep enough to grab on to - maybe it's the angle of the camera. Did you try opening them? Is it just decorative and you pull from the side?

I thought the same thing Vince , but I tried them and they actually weren't to bad to open with .
The concern I have is , you'd need thick material in order to make them deeper yet to where there more ergonomically correct .

I wonder what if a guy just cut right threw , then added an additional layer in behind to cover up the hole?
But now that I think about it , the additional piece in behind would hit the shelves. Well unless the shelves were backed up a 1/2"

I donít always insulate , but when I do .

Can't say if I've seen them done that way or not, but have seen them at the top or bottom of the drawer front - I'm thinking that would be easier to make, but not done any.

Thanks Herb , I'm learning something new everyday . Probably a good thing I guess .
Till you guys mentioned it , I had no idea there was an actual router bit called a Drawer Finger Pull router bit?
This just keeps getting better

Rick - not trying to change your mind but I've used these pulls - easy install, nothing to catch on clothing and fairly cheap from Lee Valley

http://www.routerforums.com/tools-wo...ml#post1417730

Here's Lee Valley's link - item "D" made of oak - $4 each or $3.40 for 10 or more

Or you could use this style
