Just a shot of the freebie cabinets; Craig’slist special. Cleaned, painted, and custom made handles.

For those who claim; I always lose my wrencches—- look at the picture! I can find those!

Seriously we wanted something different for cabinet handles. Son’s idea was to use some of the odd wrenches and make them. It seemed to work well enough.

I made a jig from old countertop—3-3/4 inch spacing and angle cut. I cut a corner then a flat side to drill the pilot holes. That way I could use the drill press fence and set it where I needed it. I have a small homemade fence that I use all the time on my small drillpress.

The same jig I used for welding up the handles was used as a drilling jig by clamping it right to the doors. I had to make another for the drawer.

The wrences have a 1-1/2 inch 1/4×20 bolt welded to the back of them. I ran a nut down to the end of the threads, stuck the bolts into the jig threa end in. Then I used a gluing clamp (BIG-clothespin style) to clamp the wrench to the bolt heads while I tacked them in place. Then I used the ground clamp on the wrench when doing the final welding up.

Then I used about 3 coats of primer and use see the result.
