Installing drawer handles.

Recommended Posts

I’m wrapping up a project and am about to drill my drawer handles (attached with 2 machine bolts). I’ve installed handles numerous times in the past, but never on a piece of furniture that I’ve spent this much time working on.

What size would you drill the hole.

3/16 – need to use a screwdriver to pass bolt thru wood

11/64 – bolt drops in and has small amount of play

3/16 – a little loose and would allow refinement with handle alignment.

I’m guessing the best way to get precision would be to create a jig where the holes are done in the drill press then clamp this jig to the drawer and drill with a cordless drill.
