Walnut Sideboard – Handmade Hinges
Due to the unique design of the door handles, it was necessary to make two pairs of brass pivot hinges for the centre doors as they could not be bought of the shelf at the Ironmongers.
I worked out the pivot points and clearances needed by drawing the hinges in CAD before starting to make them.
I cut the hinges from 4mm brass sheet stock and 5mm brass bar.
I then drilled out the hinges for the 5mm pivot points.
After putting the parts together I rough shaped them on the disc sander.
Final fine shaping on the diamond pad.
I then drilled out the screw holes and countersunk them.
The completed pivot hinges ready for fitting.
