Mounting a cabinet door with a hinge sounds simple, but there's a lot to think about before you start. Exactly which of the many types of hinges should you use? What's the difference between cheaper rolled hinges and better extruded hinges? Should you mount hinges to the door or the case first? Even before you mill your lumber, you've got to think ahead to the dimensions of standard hinge sizes. Furniture maker and teacher Philip Lowe has mounted thousands of pairs of hinges in his day. He'll show you how to fit a door to its case, how to quickly and precisely mark and pare-out the hinge-mortises, and most important, how to solve the problem of a door that doesn't quite close flat against the case. Philip Lowe has been making and repairing museum-quality furniture since 1972. He completed his formal training program at North Bennet Street School in Boston. After graduation he was an instructor the school for 10 years. His shop, situated on the waterfront in Beverly, Mass. in now the home of his own school, The Furniture Institute of Massachusetts. Running time 20 minutes.
