'What is the best way to line up a barrel hinge from the lid to the body of the project?' Submitted by: lvshilling WWGOA Editor Response: Try using dowel centers.These handy devices have a barrel that fits into a hole and a point that projects above the hole.
Drill the barrel hinge holes in the body of the box first, insert the dowel centers, position the lid, and gently press down on the lid.You'll leave small dimples in the lid where the dowel centers are located.
Many barrel hinges are metric, but don't get thrown off.A 10-mm barrel hinge is very close in size to a 3/8″ dowel center.George Vondriska Managing Editor Got a woodworking question you need answered? Comment or Email us at [email protected]
