Precisely-fitting and swinging doors are one of the hallmarks of fine craftsmanship in furniture.  Using models, jigs, and possibly a little flying sawdust, WPW member Bill James will take us through his process of how to lay out, mortise, and install various types of fine butt hinges, including the steps necessary to properly size doors for beautiful and consistent gaps.  If time allows, the presentation may also include information on installing knife hinges (both straight and L-shaped), a beautiful cousin to the butt hinge.


Please note that this will be our first in-person meeting since February 2020, and it is being held in a new location with COVID still a concern.  As such, there is a lot of new information regarding your attendance at this meeting that is prominently posted on the website.  Please do not attend the meeting without having thoroughly reviewed this information:
