Step by Step Instructions

1 Install the panel on the bottom drawer
2 Install the panels in the upper drawers
  • Step 1. Install the panel on the bottom drawer

    Remove the upper drawers. Then clamp the bottom panel into place on the drawer, so all the edges line up with the cabinet. Use a counter sink drill bit to pre-drill screw holes through the drawer into the panel. The counter sink bit creates a space for the screw head to sit as it drills. Drill four screw holes for a deep drawer, two holes if it’s shallow. Screw the panel into place, leaving the screws slightly loose in case you need to adjust them
  • Step 2. Install the panels in the upper drawers

    Put the next drawer in the cabinet. Place the Kaboodle handle template on top of the previous drawer panel as a spacer. Then simply repeat the process from Step 1. Do this for each drawer until the whole cabinet is finished. Do any last minute adjustments with the mallet then give all the screws a final tighten.
