I popped to my local B and Q two days ago, to get some sealant for my bathroom, i came home with a fitted kitchen Laughing , we spent all day yesterday putting it together and have only done half!!
Im having a bit of trouble fitting the handles,they are double ended and i dont see how to make the holes in the right place easily, does anyone have any ideas??
Thanks in advance
Catkins.

Hi Cat it's lovely to see you posting again. Mr. Green

Now about your handles .... we've fitted a few of these in our time (a real pain) and we have to turn them on their side, against the piece of furniture, and then mark the place where you want to drill holes with a felt tipped pen. You'd think B&Q could at least mark where they're supposed to go wouldn't you? It would make life sooooo much easier. Hope this helps.

Measure, measure and measure again... Then drill one hole and put it on with only one screw. Use a level to make the handle level and trace around the spot for the second screw with a pencil. Take it off and drill the second hole.

Another way is to make a template from cardboard or thick paper - figure out the spacing you want on a drawer and drill. Now take your paper and put it over it so you can mark exactly where the corner and edges are and where the holes are. Place this over the next, blank, drawer and line up the markings to show you where the next set of holes needs to be.
