Wrought Iron Cabinet Pulls – Drawer knobs and cabinet pulls are typically installed between 2 1/2 and 3 inches from the farthest corner of the hinged cabinet doors. For top cabinets, this is the bottom corner in the base cabinets, this is the top corner. Knobs and handles installed in a kitchen drawer front typically center in the middle of the drawer, both top-down and side-to-side. Despite these rules, however, there is some room for variation, particularly depending on the personal preferences of the homeowner and how they look.
A cabinet drilling template is a piece of plastic that hangs from the corner of the cabinet. It is covered with holes at different distances from one another and is used to help get the correct placement of the wrought iron cabinet pulls and strip on each cabinet door. Hang the template on the door, locate the hole or holes you need to drill and draw your outline over the closet with a pencil. Once you know where you want the handles or knobs to be installed, the holes should be drilled for them.
Use a drill that is the same size as the screws you are using the knob or wrought iron cabinet pulls. Drill the front of the box towards the back. Keep drilling level and drill very slowly, without much pressure placed on the cabinet. This will prevent the drill bit from splintering the back of the door as it pushes through.
