Important to know up front, I don't have a drill press.
OK here's my problem. Finished my first mission style chest of
drawers. Got the following bail pulls from Paxton hardware.
I love the look, but I've never tried to mount one of these before.
After 3 sets of holes in one of my drawer fronts I still can't get it
accurate enough to be acceptable. Looks like I would need a drill
press and a lot of trial and error, and an extremely accurate jig to
get this working. Definitely won't be doing that for this project.
Luckily I'm using false fronts so if all else fails, I can make a new
drawer front for that drawer. But if I can figure out a way to mount
it, it will cover the holes I've made so far. I'm thinking of boring a
few holes in the bail pull and surface mounting them. Some bail pulls
I've seen do mount like this, not mine though. But I would need to
find screws that match the bronze pretty well, so they would blend in.
Any suggestions on where to find something like that? My other
alternative is to go with a surface mounted bin pull instead, and I
have found a few that would match well. For example:
