Cabinet Knobs

Putting in knobs on your cupboards should be the finishing touch to setting up a new kitchen. A cupboard doorway is made of five basic parts, the center panel, the top and base rail, and two aspect stiles.

You might ask your self “in which should I place the knob and how?”

The answer is simple set the knob in which it appears the best.

When we installed most inventory kitchens, we kept this solution easy and drilled the gap three inches from the base of the door and centered in the stile.

For your very own cupboards it might be better to drill your gap at a various spot.

Keep the knob up to the doorway and see exactly where it seems best. It might perform better to drill your hole at the intersection of the aspect stile and the bottom rail.

Sometimes it is very best to have the base of your knob at the leading of the base rail.

Keep your knob at the place you want it and make a mark where your hole will be positioned.

Use a three/sixteen” drill little bit for producing the gap. Use painters tape on your door and measure from the bottom and the facet to make your mark to drill the hole.

Right after all doors are marked open the doorway and hold a piece of plywood behind the doorway. This will keep the drill bit from tearing out the wood when it goes via the gap.

Take the tape off and put in your knob turning the screw into the knob and keeping the knob regular.

Stand back and take pleasure in a work nicely completed and appreciate your new kitchen.
