Nice idea Harry, but just barely enough information to make one. Is this your jig, or someone else's jig?

Oh, I don't know, looks simple enough to me, don't need measurements, just wing it. I like it.

You're right Theo - jig is simple enough and don't need measurements. Just create a box with some strips. Cut your ply or mdf or whatever you're using to fit inside the square, then using a hole saw, or forstner bit, cut cut off each corner as you rotate the material inside the square. Your knobs will be whatever size you make the square.

I was thinking of cutting the knob square, then gluing strips to make the box. But, really, it would be whichever way you prefer.
