Build A Cabinet Handle Jig To Ensure Precise Handle Placement On Every Door

Installing cabinet handles sounds like an easy task, but getting the exact placement on each door can be maddening. Make this simple jig to get the hole placement right every time.

The above video from the Woodworkers Guild of America demonstrates how to make the jig. Start with ½" plywood cut at 4"x7", then glue stops that align along the bottom and the top. Then mark your exact hole placement on the cabinet and replicate that on your jig. Drill holes through your jig and then you'll have a template to use on every cabinet. Make sure you drill straight through the jig every time on every hole.

    I wish my kitchen installer had used one of these (or used one properly). Every handle is just a tiny bit off vertical. Very annoying!
