    Some time ago I watched one of his videos (don’t remember which), where he showed how to make fast table top buttons. I’m having trouble finding it. Anyone know where it is?


    There’s an oldish, short video on WWMC called ‘Turn-Buttons’
    where they are made in pairs from one piece of waste. It tends to revolve around getting a precise split in the right place from a compliant bit of wood.

    There are other methods: for example I cut them in sets across the end of a board; mark and cut a long rebate of the required depth across the end then mark each out, drill the holes and cut across and down wards. You’ll get about 6 x 1 inch wide buttons out of a 7 inch wide board. Repeat it all for a dozen and so on
    There are many ways to do it… depends how many you need.
    Good luck


    @weslee, the first method he shows is the one I remember. Thank you.
