Drawer handle guide
While reading Mike's 'Blake and Joanne's Kitchen Remodel' thread I was in the process of completing the build of my 4 drawer workshop unit for screws n such. I needed a way to ensure the handles were dead centre both horizontally and vertically.
So this is the end result of my multi-use jig, adjustable in depth from bottom of drawer and currently has three screw width holes, 50mm, 60mm and 70mm centres.
First I measure height of drawer front. Then set the jig height (depending on which centres I want to use) to half the drawer height.
Then I mark, lightly, the horizontal centre.
I place the jig on the bottom of the drawer front with the centre line lined up with the centre mark, and drill the two 2mm holes to a depth of about 6mm. Remove the jig and repeat on the other drawers.
Once done, drill through after putting a back support to avoid tearout and drill the required size screw holes.
Then I read the last few posts from mike where he'd made a drawer front sized template.........
When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.
