Custom wood knobs made are now up to s/n 280. Some failed; some are still lost in storage; some have been given to friends; several of the last have not yet been documented. These are the knobs on hand. The older knobs have 1/4″-20 threaded shaft holes, which must be drilled out to be useful, a process which can ruin a knob, or fail to produce a hole square with the knob. All the newer knobs have been mounted on 6 mm shafts in the process of hand cutting on a lathe, virtually eliminating that possibility. Note that the scales of these images are all different.

These knob blanks are made of layered Padauk & American Cherry, Padauk & Yellowheart, and in front, Brazillian Cherry & Bubinga (African Rosewood). The dark stain on the 2nd knob from the left, back row, is superglue, applied repeatedly to the set screw hole, foolishly placed into end grain. It cuts away on the lathe. Note two styles of relief for pot mounting nuts: bell-shaped in front row, cut with a custom spade bit, and cylindrical in back row, cut with a Forstner bit. Both should work equally well.
