Replacing the Hardware

Most hardware is attached to the drawer front by means of one or two machine screws (not wood screws), which go through holes in the wood to nuts inside the drawer. New hardware for a drawer may require a different set of holes, so you have to fill the old holes. Do this by inserting dowels of the right diameter. Sand and stain the ends of the dowels so they can't be seen.

Carefully measure the drawer front to locate the positions of the new holes. Mark the exact position by lapping a dent with the awl. This dent not only serves as a marker, but also helps the drill bit start in exactly the right spot.
