Drawer-Pull Mounting Jig
Mounting drawer pulls has never been easier than with this handy shop helper.
Mount drawer pulls in a jiffy by taking a few minutes to build this jig. With it, you can shave lots of time off the task of drilling drawer-pull mounting holes. To use it, first cut a 1/4" scrap piece to 5-1/4 x 12". Then, mark a vertical centerline on the jig. Mark and drill centered holes for the pulls on both sides of the vertical line. For most drawers, you will want to locate the holes in the jig so the pulls are centered on the height of the drawer fronts. Then, mark the center of each drawer front on its top edge, align the jig’s vertical centerline with it, and drill the holes, as shown in the photo.
