Bedside table – Hinges in and case glued up

In order to get the hinges in, I super glued the hinge in place using a card scraper for spacing from the side of the case.  Once I had the hinge outlined and marked using my marking knife, I knocked the hinge off the wood.  Then I used my router, chisels and finally the router plane to remove the wastes.  I used this same process to install the knife hinges in the wall cabinet with good result.

    Great tip for knife hinges, I’ll have to file that away.

    I am impressed. Never have attempted knife hinges for fear of alignment problems.

      Using the card scraper as a spacer, centering the hinge piece and using the router to remove the waste is how Marc Spagnolo teaches installation of these and it has worked really well me.
