I used to do a bit of woodworking but have not in several years. My sister has talked me into doing a sideboard for her. I have been looking for drawer pulls and knobs and hinges and am surprised at the prices. Where are you guys and gals buying your hardware and are they reasonable or do I just need to come into the new century with my thinking. $5-$6 for a drawer pull or knob seems really high to me. Thanks in advance.

Dieselrider, I didnt get online until late tonight but i go to a lot of fleamarkets and see all the things you need cheap.There is one about 45 miles from me and there is a guy there that has any kind or style you want.If i knew just what you wanted maybe i could run up there in the next couple weeks and get you some.I went to one today in Atlanta but didnt remember seeing any and thats where Jenny can always find me in tools and hardware. My shop runth over. James(Ga)

DR when I started on some new kitchen cabinets year before last I was like you and thought that stuff was too over priced so I ordered some supplies from Rockler's. By the time I paid freight and waited for 3-4 weeks I was sick I had mail ordered to begin with.

Then to top it all off the on-line suppliers sell the same brands as McCoy's, Lowe's and Home Depot. The same brand of knobs and hinges would have been cheaper and no wait to have got them locally.

McCoy's alway have the best price and selection but I don't know if they are only in Texas.

Live and learn I rekin.
