The other day I was feeling particularly annoyed by how boring and off-the-shelf my cabinet pulls were.

- Make the hole for the screw using a phillips screw driver and a couple whacks of your hammer
- Push your screw through the hole and secure it to the cabinet with a hex nut
- Enjoy your new software!
A little creativity goes a long way!
