You’ll need:

Step 1: Mark and drill the holes

Apply a piece of masking tape about 2 cm from the edge of the acrylic sheet. Measure the distance between the screw holes on the handles and mark this on the piece of masking tape. In our example, there’s a distance of 16cm between the holes for the screws. Using a small size drill bit, drill two holes in the acrylic sheet.

Step 2: Fixing the handles

Remove the masking tape and apply it to the other side so that you don’t have to measure the distance between the holes again. Drill two more holes, then place the screws into position from below and place the handles on them.

Step 3: Finishing the DIY acrylic tray

Turn the acrylic sheet over and screw the screws into the handles so that they are securely attached. You can also stick self-adhesive baize to the screw heads, which will prevent your table from getting scratched.
