Installing Euro Hinges

Here’s a quick blow by blow.

Installing the hinges

I did a step by step of the hinge installation for anyone whose interested .. and .. so I don’t forget how I did it.  I used card scrapers on all for sides to create the proper spacing.  The card scraper just happens to be the same thickness as the hinge washer.

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.
