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".
