Just thought I would open discussion of all those little things that once we see or hear about we go, “dah, why didn’t I think of that?”
When installing drawer fronts to the boxes, I have always aligned the front in relationship that looks good to the face frame. I then put a drywall screw in each of the 2 handle/pull mounting holes to pull the drawer box up against the front, then open the drawer and insert screws from the inside. Finally, remove the drywall screws and install the pull.
Came across the current kitchen I am working on, and the people we are building it for wanted a single screw knob. Well, the drawer front can pivot using the technique described. My co-worker, said we can use double stick tape applied to the front of the box to keep the drawer from pivoting as the drywall screw goes in.
I said, ...dah, why didn’t I think of that?
