Hi colleagues.
Some cabinets of my daughter kitchen's had their plastic door pullers broken so I decided to make them out of wood. I took one plastic door puller as a pattern and put it in my homemade milling machine to copy it from a chunk of pine. I got two nice pieces but they looked flimsy for its intended use. I used the one new piece as a pattern to get a thicker one using an 8mm dowel as an indexer. I made 5 new door puller for the wall cabinets now I have to make 10 of them for the base cabinets to match all the doors and drawers.

I wouldn't know where to start to try making those curves. I've made a couple of handles, just for workshop drawers but they were just rectangular with rounded edges.

Great job on the door pulls, and congrats on the machine design that does a job as you envisioned it.
