Cabinet knobs


Should I install cabinet knobs on doors which are side by side by marking placement for one knob and using a level for placement of the other knob since the doors are hung a tad unlevel? I installed a couple of the knobs using the same measurements and they are not level with each other.

What type hindges do you have? Some are adjustable. Not sure what type you have just post a picture.
The knobs need to be level or it's going to stick out.

I have reverse bevel hinges which are mounted on back of cabinet door and face of cabinet and cannot be moved or I would have holes to patch and marks to repair.

No such thing as reverce bevel so I'm going to guess there offset hindges if there are not the ones I post the website for.

No, not those but if you click on overlay hinges, mine are a self-closing reverse bevel variable overlay hinge. My cabinets are older.

Just install one knob and use a Topedo level when marking the next one.

There are nice plastic templates available in the knob isle of the stores----makes positioning knobs easy.

Worth a buck or two if you have several to install.

I purchased these templates. There's one for doors and one for drawers. I'm thinking about $3 each

I've got the templates. The problem is...if I drill the holes in the same location on both doors, if the doors are off a bit the knobs are not level.

Adjust the doors-----It will look goofy to have crooked doors with level knobs---

Fancy hinges have two or even three adjustment screws----simple surface mounted hinges are adjusted by bending the hinge a bit---

I agree with Mike....."perfume on a pig" I believe is the saying.

No disrespect meant
