I’m closing in on completing the construction of the wall cabinet. Progress this past week has been on the hinge mortises. I’ve got the mortises in the doors done, as well as two of the four in the case.
I’m cutting the mortises by hand – using a marking gauge to mark the depth and width and doing the rest with a chisel. It’s slow work – the door frames and case are maple, after all, but satisfying.
Here’s a picture of one of the mortises, with the hinge in place.
