Concealed Hinge

Postby lorraine7045 » Sun Jan 20, 2013 9:31 am


I have cut down a kitchen cabinet door and need to make a hole to insert a concealed hinge.

I don't know how to do this. Do i need to use a drill with a forstner bit or a router?

The door is made of 18mm MDF.

You can make a hole, with either a 26mm or 35mm hinge cutter, it can be used in a drill, but make sure you don't go too deep.
