I’ve been working on this jewelry box for my sister for a long time now an finally got the sides glued up and the finish on.
She likes it but has now asked for pegs to be installed on the inside to hook the ends of her necklaces on so they don’t tangle. We picked out these ones from Brusso:
Problem here is that I’ve only got 2 1/2” of clearance on the inside of the box so drilling the mounting hole from the inside seems impossible to me (if she’d have asked for the pegs before it was glued up that would be different).
So my plan was to drill a 1/8” deep hole at 1/4” and then the rest of the way through the back with a 3/16” (the size needed to mount the peg) from the outside of the box. Then I use a 1/4” plug cutter to hide the hole.
Thing is, we’ve already spent most of her budget on Brusso hinges and this beautiful piece of cocobolo for the lid:
I know a plug cutter isn’t that expensive but we’d like to keep costs down. Does anyone have any other ideas for how I could drill that hole? Any help is greatly appreciated.
