Hinge Mortising Jig
Routing a perfect mortise for a hinge can be a challenge, but this jig makes it a snap by using the hinge to set it up.
One of the "make it or break it" parts of building a project comes when you install the hardware. A poorly fit hinge not only looks bad, but it can affect how well a door or lid opens and closes. This jig makes cutting a mortise for a hinge almost automatic. It uses the hinge to set the jig for a perfect fit. Then let a trim router do all the work. It can handle hinges as small as 3/4", or as large as 3 1/8".

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
