While building my 6-panel cabinet recently, I decided to capture the process of mortising for a butt hinge. With a router, a small straight bit, a chisel, and some careful layout, you’ll find mortising for hinges to be fun and easy.
These simple tips will make the process much easier:
– Create some sort of story stick for repeatability.
– Use a marking gauge and knife to scribe the hinge locations for ultimate accuracy.
– Use a router remove the bulk of the material at a consistent depth.
– Use a sharp chisel to fine-tune the fit.
