Cherry Wall Cabinet - Completed

Recommended Posts

It’s worth trying out! You might love it or you might hate it, but you won’t know until you try!

Final decision time- where to locate the pulls. Middle of door? Mid-low on door? Low on door?

I think I like them lower than middle, but beyond that I can’t decide. Any general rules or good examples for me to look at?

Mid low, but a little higher than in #2. About where the top of the pull is in line with that pitch pocket on the left door.

Nice job on the build!

I'd put them at the height most comfortable for you to reach when the cabinet is hung. Since most tool cabinets are hung so that center is about eye-level, at or near the bottom corner makes sense.

This. 

Next I would consider the latch mechanisms, if any.  If there's a top latch then a higher pull position (that is still a comfortable reach) is better.

Form follows function in this setting.

At this point I’m not really considering any latch. If the doors end up trying to wander open, I’d just put a small magnet in the divider above the drawers to hold them shut.
