A while back, Dina and I bought some nightstands from a neighborhood shop. They were unfinished, and we painted them with some milk paint. I quite like how they came out, and we needed some drawer pulls to match — I figured why not give 3D printing them a shot?

In a CAD program, I extruded some letters thrown together, and put a slightly domed surface on the top to make them a little less blocky.

3D printing does have some limitations, particularly fused filament fabrication. Specifically, by and large you can't print in mid-air, so I had to split the pulls into two parts: the letters themselves and the posts to set them off from the drawer fronts.

I glued the posts in with superglue, and the pulls were ready to go.
