Cut Toys to Size

Hold and cut each of the rubber or thick plastic toys with a reciprocating saw and pliers (Images 1-3), being careful to keep hands away from the moving blades. Note: Always wear safety goggles when operating an electric saw.

Drill Holes in Toys

Use a 1/8-inch bit to drill 1/2-inch deep pilot holes in the center of each toy.

Measure for Toy Placement

Measure and mark the locations for each hardware piece with a marker or pencil, ensuring all marks are the same distance from the outside edges of the drawer and on the same center horizontal plane.
