At last. There are shiny ergonomic opening devices on my kitchen cabinets! I was miraculously able to drill every gosh darn hole in just the right spot. Which limited the swearing to punctuate the dropping of tools and wrestling the drill to change bits.
I am most pleased with the result. Not only is the cabinet hardware decorative, it actually makes opening the doors and drawers easier on my cranky hands and wrists. It took nearly all day, but after ten years, who's counting?
