    • Project That Really Rocks

      Buying hardware for your home can put a dent in your wallet. Venture into your backyard for material to make your own out of rocks -- after all, they're free and readily available. You'll go green and save some green in the process.

    • Materials

      Here's everything you┬┐ll need to create some stone solid hardware:

      -- Smooth rock with a flat surface on one side

      -- Flathead machine screws

      -- Bowl of sand

      -- Two-part epoxy adhesive

      -- Small flat washers

      -- Lock washers

    • Rock Knobs: Step 1

      Go out in your garden or backyard in search of rocks that will make great knobs. The best are rocks with one flat surface and a rounded top for something to grab onto.

    • Rock Knobs: Step 2

      Use flathead machine screws with the accompanying nuts and washers for spacing. The length of the screws is up to you.

    • Rock Knobs: Step 3

      Place your rock in a tub or bowl of sand to stabilize it while you work. Be sure the flat side of your rock is facing up.

    • Rock Knobs: Step 4

      Mix up some two-part epoxy adhesive according to the directions. Make sure the adhesive is suitable for use on metal or concrete.

    • Rock Knobs: Step 5

      Apply a small amount of the adhesive to the rock and add your screw, head side down. Make sure it is centered. Let it set.

    • Rock Knobs: Step 6

      Add your new knobs to your doors or drawers. To create space between the knob and drawer, add a small washer or two. If you use a lock washer at the end, this will prevent the knob from loosening over time.
