Arbutus Cabinet Knobs?
I live on Denman Island on a property on the water with a half dozen arbutus trees.
I made some cabinets from cedar from my property and would like to have arbutus pull knobs for them.
Can you make arbutus knobs (need 6)? I am thinking of something about 1" in diameter and 1" projection. Maybe it is too small to work with? Will they split/crack over time?
How much would you charge?

You need a wood turner to make those. That's not me. Just make some lumber in the width you want plus 50% extra and store the wood for a while to dry. Then they could turn it. Imagine it as a long dowel that could provide the 6 pieces.
Another simpler option is to take the curvy part of small branches, let dry and make into nice handles that attaches with screws from the drawer.
