Hi Folks, While this isn't actually a jewelry related question, I'm
hoping its close enough or there's a happy coincidence that someone
might be able to provide suggestions. I want to make kitchen drawer
pulls and cabinet knobs that contain cabochons of leftover granite
home improvement stores that have ceramic or corian inserts, but I
have not been able to find any without inserts already in them.
Of course, I could lathe turn something then have a caster or
foundry reproduce it for me, but that seems like reinventing the
wheel, and an awful lot of labor for something that should (might?)
be available commercially.
Does anybody have any contacts, suggestions or ideas that might pan
out for these "knob blanks?" Ideally looking for a pewter or brushed
stainless look, by the way.
Thanks in advance,
