  1. Place the sconces on the door and trace around them with a pencil
  2. Using a chisel, remove the raised part of the molding where the sconces overlap it in order for the sconces to fit flat on the door
  3. Using a 1” Forstner bit, drill a hole in the center of the penciled circles from step 1. This will serve to feed the wires
