We have a few nice pieces of furniture with doors/drawers and no locks that will need to be made child-proof.

I'm looking for a solution that allows us to child-proof them without causing damage to the cabinet, in particular the exterior. I can live with a couple of screw holes inside the doors if needed.

Can anyone recommend such a product?

There's a wonderful variety of options here: http://www.shopping.com/-child+proof+cabinet+locks

There are over ~1/2 dozen distinctly different types here that seem to fit all types of doors. This should give you some inspiration so you at least know what your options are. The last one is particularly cool:

magnetic lock now has a self-adhesive mount, so you can childproof your cabinets without drilling them! "Invisible" from the outside, and a must for doors without handles. Mount the lock inside the door (allow 24 hours for adhesive to set). To open, place the key on top. Includes two locks, key, and key-holder.
