I got down to ReStore today to search for some options for turntable controls. This place is like an extended basement – boxes of stuff that people have saved from their renovations and donated. You can’t expect to find exactly what you need, but if you’re flexible, you might find something that will work for you.
For a dollar, I came away with two drawer pulls and a tap. I’m hoping the tap screams “turn me!” when it appears on the fascia, without looking like you should expect water or air to start flowing.
I’m deciding whether to use the two-finger or the round drawer pull to drive the locking pin. My initial thought was that the two-finger one doesn’t look as much like a drawer pull, but it doesn’t look like a lock either. Any preferences out there?
My plan is that all fascia hardware will be painted fascia colour so that they don’t look messy in the room. There will be minimal, low contrast labelling as well, and so, I want the knobs to intuit what they do.
