No need to take out the various router jigs to mortise hinges and other hardware! If you are installing one or two hinges, doing it by hand is fast and surprisingly easy.
In this class, Joel will use top-of-the-line Brusso hinges and demonstrate mortising butt hinges using basic hand tools, then work with each member of the class to mortise in a hinge. The principles taught in the class can be applied to all size boxes and any size traditional butt or box hinges.
All materials, including wood and and Brusso butt hinges, will be provided for use in the class. Some needed tools will be provided for use during the class. In addition, students must bring or purchase the following tools:
- A chisel (¾” - 1 ¼” in size) that is sharp and ready to use
- A small square
- A marking knife
- A pencil
- A mallet
- At least one marking gauge (two is a lot better)
Date: Saturday, June 9, 2018, 1 pm - 4 pm
Cost: $75. All students will receive a Tools for Working Wood gift certificate for $25.
