Being a newbe at this woodworking thing, I choose a pretty involved project for my first. A 24×32 inch oak cabinet with raised panel doors to put an electronic dart board in. Corse I could have purchased one for the dart board when I ordered it for about a hundred dollars.
I remember seeing on someone’s sig. “Why buy it when you can build it” Sooooooooo by the time I buy lumbar, matched rail and stile bits, raised panel bit(s) (I didn’t like the first one I bought so I ordered one from MLCS) I have over four hundred into it, but I am learning and enjoining the experience.
What I would like to know is how do you guys measure for hinges? Is there a trick to getting them right the first time? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. I’ve really learned a lot just reading the posts here and love the site.
