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.

    Hinge solution I've always wanted

    I'm extremely impressed with Rob's wooden hinge tools. I've always hated how much high quality metal box hinges cost, but dislike how the cheap alternatives look and perform. I ran across Rob's products after seeing an Etsy product with a wooden hinge. I watched his tutorial, bought the 3/8s inch jig and matching router bit and couldn't be happier. Using just a stock dowel, the jig quickly turned out a perfectly straight wooden hinge. I made a test piece just quickly hinging two pieces of scrap (pictured), and immediately knew this was the hinge solution for decorative boxes I've always wanted but didn't even know about until now. With Rob's video help I also made the dowl jig, which works like a charm.

    3/8 wood hinge dowel jig

    Worked perfectly. Exactly centered the hole in a 3/8 dowel.
