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.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
