Measure the area, to ensure your materials are cut to the correct size at Builders.

Step 3

Dampen the ends of your pre-cut copper with a wet cloth. Apply a small amount of Gorilla Glue to the other end and connect the two ends.

Step 4

Continue until the entire handle is assembled. Repeat to create the hooks and allow to dry.

Step 5

Mark the centre of your pre-cut dowels and drill a hole through the dowel. Sand down the dowels so that they will fit firmly on to the copper pipe ends.

Step 6

Measure and mark the shelf for the hooks. Drill holes on the marks. Fasten the dowels with wood screws and place a copper hooks over the dowels.

Step 7

Use a handle to mark drill holes on the cupboard doors. Mark the centers, and drill holes through the door. Fasten the handle to the door, by screwing wood screws through the door into the dowels.
