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.
Installing hinges still makes me nervous. These are a bit more trickery than what I’ve done before. But as usual, Marc at the Wood Whisperer (membership required) has a great step by step process.
