Master craftsman Dale Nish taught me how to make an amazing wood hinge for boxes.  A wooden dowel is cut into segments, a shallow hole is drilled in the center of each dowel and a small pin is inserted into the hole for the dowel segments to pivot on. I've made thousands of boxes using this style of hinge and I have designed four jigs to precisely drill the hole in the center of dowel segments (the most difficult task).  

Product Details

  • Four individual wood-hinge drill jig sizes available: 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" & 3/4"

  • Each individual wood-hinge drill jig includes one dowel jig, drill bit holder, drill bit, and Allen wrench.

  • 1/4" & 3/8" drill jigs come with a 1/16" drill bit.

  • 1/2" & 3/4" drill jigs come with a 1/8" drill bit.

  • Opposing set screws hold the drill bit securely in the holder and allows for adjustment of the hole depth.

  • Port holes in drill bit holder expel the sawdust to prevent clogging.

    3/4” wood hinge drill kit

    I like the product, well made, drills accurately. I would suggest an improvement. If the dowel is exactly 3/4” in diameter and the cup which holds the dowel when drilling is exactly 3/4” ID then it won’t spin without burning. Could you increase the ID by a few hundredths?

    Great idea. Creating the jig to make the dowels is a giant pain. Robs description is good. I wish he sold this. It would be expensive but worth it as these are a pain to build and time consuming.
