I’m making a jewelry box for my niece (from Wood Magazine 165), and I’m at the point where I’m putting the hinges on. Anyway, I ordered the hinges that the article recommended. I then pre-drilled the holes, and drove in a #4 steel screw first to clear the way for the brass screw.
Anyway, I’ve now found out that the brass screws are actually #3 screws, so I have a #4 hole for #3 screws. I haven’t been home to see if it’ll still work out for the #3 screw, but I’m assuming that it won’t.
The hole is on a board that’s 1/4” wide curly maple. Any thoughts on what to do? If I get super lucky the #3 screws will fit, but I’ve never been super lucky :)
