Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job.


I was trying to think of something you youngsters could relate the Victrola to.... hums like a Stutz with newly vulcanized tires... floats like a hydrogen dirigible... these just won't have the same impact on a landscaper who is under .. well, 90 years old...

Who the heck was in charge of picking out the pulls? The look good on the drawers but not on the doors - look oversized to me


Otherwise the install looks like it came out well.

I guess it runs in the family. No accounting for good taste. Just as long as the last check was issued in full, I am sure it will look fantastic from your house.

I had one like that.
The old pulls were dinky
and the doors were all
nicked up from finger nails.....
not the new ones!
The biggest ones we could order.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job.


I just make my own templates. Pc of plywood and a few holes drilled on the drill press makes for a great short term tmeplate.

I always make a template for each job. Takes about 10 minutes and the customer has his/her pulls/knobs exactley where they want them.

I find that they never know where they want them placed. They always ask where I would put them. I always respond on this door somewhere, then let out a laugh. I don't ever want to give a suggestion just because I don't need them coming back and telling my they my placement doesn't look good and they want it changed.

I also say right before I drill the first hole, "Are you sure, once I drill this one hole it is all over."

I find the most problematic placement is for drawers with two pulls. I know where I like them, but they always seem to think that placing them centered above the pair of doors below should look right. I always find that brings the handles to close together, but as always, that is just my opinion.

Nice kitchen Jumbojack!

I especially like the fact that you kept soffit running over the kitchen sink. It's a nicer look in my opinion, plus it gives the pendant light over the sink a cleaner look. I'm sure the owners are very happy.

Nice job.

Then the ONE JOB you decide to put the pulls in "that typical position" where the bottom screw hole is even with the top of the bottom style, the customer FLIPS OUT! "OMG THAT LOOKS LIKE SH!T!!! WTF DID YOU DO TO MY HOUSE!? I'M CALLING A LAWYER!"
