Although this was "by request" in this case, it is also my personal
preference (I always ask).
I've found that on FF cabinet's, and for "knobs" that's where most
people want them, and where most trim carpenters will place them absent
instructions to the contrary, for cabinets in other parts of the house,
bath vanity, etc.
IOW, centered in the square made by the junction of the stile and rail.
On Euro style cabs, since it's often a "pull" rather than a "knob", I
generally center on the top of the door, in line with adjacent drawers
if possible, thusly:
What I like about this approach is that it give you a "clocked" looked,
much "clocking" the screws in a piece of fine woodwork.
This can be a real touchy thing to some clients, with some firm ideas,
so prudence is the better part of valor, and not something I would take
I've never seen the pulls done that way. I am not a cabinet builder
but spent lots of time in cab shops and of course every home kitchen.
I would find that confusing, looks like hugely deep drawers. Yes, I
would ask first.
I just looked at the first pic that came up, a shot of the sink wall
and I see what look like deep drawers under the butcher block top but
I assume are the cabinet doors you spoke of with handles at top of
door set like a drawer
I've been off pork for many a decade now, but when I was partaking, we
used to go down to the little taqueria across town on Sunday mornings
for fresh carnitas tacos, complete with fall-apart pork, chopped fresh
cilantro, and freshly diced serrano chiles on a pair of soft, hot corn
tortillas. MAN, those were good. Hmm...I'm getting hungry for some
of those again. I wonder if any of the Mex restaurants here make 'em.
Fear not those who argue but those who dodge.

Actually an elegant chicken coop with multiple windows and clean out
hatches. Think a hi rise in an upper crust chicken community. ;~)
I kept picturing about 8 "Elmer Fudd" cartoon hunters packed in there
with shot gun barrels poking out in every dirrection, waiting for that
I think the main flavor ingredient in the breakfast tacitos at Taqueria
Chiuahua is charizos. You don't want to know what goes in to making
Right. But it's good. Chorizo & egg burrito. Yum!
Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are
based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that
I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as
I have received and am still receiving.
