In this short tutorial, we get to see how a very large (giant) button is made on the lathe. The author shows the button being used on a set of curtains as a tie-back which is a wonderful use. And the steps to making the button can be used to make smaller buttons if that's what you're looking for.

In this short article, Vickie shows us how she turns wood to button size and then how she drills the holes used to sew the buttons to a garment. She makes two types of buttons: regular, flat back and ones with a shank on the back.
