Nice hinges…Any 1st. attemp and following attempts at something has alot of lessons to be learned…Are those made with the Incra Jig?

These look real good. Does the hinge pin go all the way through? If so how did you drill them? Also it would be nice to know what lessons you learned.

Yes, it was made with the Incra system. Do you also make your boxes with Incra? I have seen your work and I am simply amazed at what you do.

Yes, the pins went through with no problem, thanks to the Incra (Hinge) Jig system. Also, what is the protocol for posting our lessons learned?

Just a tongue in cheek comment Monkman. I was hinting that the story is as important as the photo, so I hope you will tell us a bit more about your projects. Remember, your audience being woodworkers is also interested in the details, not just the beautiful project pics. There is no protocol. You are entirely free to post it any way you want to.
