Fitting a solid brass butt hinge on woodwork hardware fitting course
Fitting a solid brass butt hinge

Course description

I often see otherwise excellent pieces of furniture that are spoilt by less than perfect fitting of hinges and locks. On this course we will explore how to get a perfect fit for these pieces of brassware.

There are two ways a butt hinge can be fitted, either with both leaves fitted flush with the surface or cabinet makers style where the hinge is slightly tilted in angled recesses. You will learn both method on the course. The standard cut lock as may be used in high class cabinet work is a complex shape requiring a careful and methodical approach to achieve a good fit. Additionally there may be the fitting of the eschutcheon. To find out more on the skills involved see my articles on hinge and lock fitting in Good Wooodworking:

However working from articles is not quite the same as getting direct tuition so if you want to get real hands on instruction this is the course for you.
