drilling holes for cabinet knobs..how??
I had a falling out with my contractor (long story) who left me with a maple bathroom vanity with no knobs. I want to drill them myself but I need some guidance. I understand the need for keeping the drill level and I have access to a drill with a built in level. MY husband made a jig out of wood but the jig already has an elongated hole from a practice drilling though scrap wood that went wonkers. I might be better off doing it free hand (without the jig).
The door fronts are 3/4 inch thick but the drawer fronts are 1 1/2 inch thick. Will it be hard to keep the drill level though the 1 1/2 inch thickness with out something like a drill press? I also noticed another problem when we did the practice drilling, when the drill exited the back of the scrap wood it splintered, how do I keep that from happening?
