Several people have requested that I provide the tutorial on how I made our river rock cabinet knobs. It's been three years since I made them, and they're holding up really well. So, here's the tutorial!
Materials & Equipment Needed:
River rocks that are approximately 1/2" thick
Scrapbook screws & posts, 1.5" long
1/2cm masonry drill bit
Drill a hole through the center of each rock.
Measure the width of your cabinet AND rock. Subtract that number from 1.5". That is the size your cork should be. Cut your cork to size (I used a bread knife).
Drill a hole down the center of your cork.
Place your rock and cork onto a scrapbook post, and fit it into your pre-drilled cabinet. Secure in the back with the screw.
Every knob will have its own unique character and cost a mere $.50. They may twist and turn a little, but that's fine as long as they're snug against the cabinet. Also, you may need to tighten the screws periodically.
