Haha, this is brilliant! What a superb idea! For months I have thought of ordering a button mandrel, but the shipping to me would exceed the tool, and I just can't bring myself to do that. Well, now I already have a few different button mandrels in my studio, ready to go. It really is that easy, the materials really are that accessible. I'm so stoked. I'm going to make a button or two tonight. I'm sure a new thread will be starting in the gallery very soon! Thanks Jo!

Do you have a pic of the handle? Is it really fat? How is it at turning?

Hi Karen~ Thanks for your interest! The tut covers 10 different mandrel styles and most have more than one configuration, so pictures would kind of be giving away the essence of the whole tutorial.

But to try to answer your question, the handle on most of the styles is about 1/4" in diameter and about 4 inches long. The finished mandrel holder is all one piece, so it turns smoothly in your hand. Most people find it very easy to use, even if they have small hands, because it's lightweight and well-balanced. I hope that tells you what you need to know!

Jo

Bex ~ I love this idea, I'd love to see what everybody is making with their new mandrels. Anybody know the protocol? Should I start the thread asking for people to post pictures, or wait for somebody else to start it?

Received mine Jo. Now how smart is that? When even *I* can make it - it's gotta be easy.

You have done a wonderful job on the instructions. That's what I love in a tutorial - ease of use and readily available materials. Thank you.

Gotta work on colors/design but wanted to show these anyway. The blue one I used 3/32 mandrels, the Purple one 1/16 ... the 1/16 which I like better for size. They measure 30 and 26 mm across.
Really REALLY easy designed Tool to free the mandrels for Kiln too !! for those of you who were asking
I would like to see some from you all !! This may become another Bad Habit to have !

Oooh, very cool! Thanks for sharing these. They are very fun. Did you pinch the edges with tweezers to make that pattern? I love how even a very simple pattern just looks big and fabulous on a button. Thanks Lorraine!
