Step 1: Find a Board & Secure it
I removed just the board itself, and left the metal mechanism in the cabinet. The board was attached to the metal with just one bolt, and a wing nut. Lucky me! I drilled a hole in the top of the old dresser I use for sewing supplies, and attached the board with the bolt, and the wing nut. I wanted a good portion of the board to sit on the dresser while it was turned out, so I made the hole just behind the 1X2 that runs down the inside center of the dresser.
If you don't have a board you can use for this project, or the tools to cut the board, take a trip to the lumber yard. More often than not, the staff at the lumber yard will cut the wood for you. If you don't have a drill to make the holes for the bolt attachment, check to see if your community has a tool library where you can borrow one.
