Today, I would like to share with you my drilling methods.
The 35mm hole should be drilled at 3~6mm from the door edge.
As you will see, I’m drilling at 4mm (5/32”) from the edge but, you can use any other distance.
The bigger the hole distance from the edge, the bigger the “overlay”...in other words, if the 4mm dist. will give you a door that is flush with the cabinet wall, the 5mm will result in the door protruding 1mm out of the cabinet wall but, it can be adjusted very easy and, maybe it’s better to have some “playing distance”.
Just take a few scraps and experiment with both 4mm and 5mm and decide what you like more.
The 35mm hole should be drilled to at least 11mm (7/16”) depth but, I love it a little bit more and usually, I drill to 13mm (1/2”).
