How to add hardware to your garage cabinets
Figure out where you want the placement and stick a 3″ or 4″piece of masking tape on the spot. As a rule for most standard cabinets, holes for knobs are drilled about 1.5″ from the opening (vertical) edge and 2″ from the top or bottom (horizontal) edge, depending on if the door is an upper or lower cabinet.
Measure the distance of the hole or holes to be drilled from the side and bottom edge of doors. If this is for drawers then measure from both sides and from bottom and top for centering. Mark the hole positions on the masking tape.
Determine the drill bit size and drill holes at marked areas on the tape from the front of the cabinet surface. Drilling from the back may cause splintering.
Remove tape and install the screws through the back of the cabinet into the knob, tighten the screws and you are done.
