I work at a furniture shop; I don’t make the stuff unfortunately, but I do fit the ironmongery. When I mark out for the handles I use a template that one of my colleagues made. As it’s only a piece of mount board, it’s not very accurate and there are no stops or anything. It takes a long time to mark out all the handles as a result. Don’t get me wrong, it works, but it’s not very efficient and we have a lot of furniture coming through sometimes.
I’m quite curious as to if I can make a small jig that makes this easier and quicker. I had the idea of a board with the holes drilled through. 4 sliding stops, 2 of which (being the top 2) sliding together to centralise it horizontally, and the remaining two sides sliding both together and Independently of each other. to centralise on small drawers and to line one side if it’s wider.
I hope that gives a reasonably clear idea of what I mean. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated to point me in the right direction.
