Made this for my new work bench. The lions head I inherited when my grandmother passed away. she used to work with upholstery and furniture restoration. The knobs are cut out of mahogany using a 4” hole saw and 1” Forstner bit for the indents then a 1/4” round over and a 1/2” spacer. 1-1/2” Poplar dowels threaded and darkened with Dark Walnut Danish Oil, set into the knobs by tapping the spacer and knob to act as a double nut and epoxied. 5/4 mahogany stock.
