Flatten your roll of cane webbing and cut an 11" x 14" piece. Set aside. Pro tip: use the 11" x 14" plexiglass sheet as a guide.

Mark + Drill Holes for Hardware

Using a marker, map out drilling points for your cabinet hardware on the plexiglass sheet, making sure they are evenly placed on each side. Using a drill bit that matches the diameter of your brass hardware, drill four holes.

Poke cabinet pull screws through the back side of cane webbing and plexiglass and secure tightly to the brass pull on the front of the frame (top of tray). If the screws for your hardware are too long for the frame you’re using, simply swap out with a shorter screw in the same diameter.

Enjoy!
