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 drill jigs to precisely drill the hole in the center of dowel segments (the most difficult task).  These jigs are available as a complete kit or as individual drill jigs.  

Wood-Hinge Drill Kit (Imperial) Without Rods: 

  • My imperial sized kit allows you to drill 1/16 inch and 1/8 inch size holes in 1/4 inch,  1/2 inch, 3/8 inch, and 3/4 inch diameter dowels.
  • Kit includes 1/16 inch and 1/8 inch drill bit holders; 1/4 inch, 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch, and 3/4 inch drill jigs; 1/16 inch and 1/8 inch drill bits; and a 1/16 inch Allen wrench.

  • 1/16 inch drill bit is used with 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch diameter dowels.

  • 1/8 inch drill bit is used for the 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch diameter dowels.

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

  • Rod kits are available for separate purchase. 

  • You may also like to purchase a copy of my video "Wood-Hinge Box" which shows you step-by-step how to build a wood-hinge box and use my drill jigs to create a wood-hinge.

Absolutely Worth the $$$

Excellent jig. Don't waste your time and money (as I did) trying to make your own. Works great! Very well made! I would suggest the addition of a small quantity of 1/16" rods just to get started.

Expensive

Very nice product. The price reflects the quality. The machining is very good. I bought the whole set as opposed to individually purchasing each one to save money. It is a very simple setup and saves a lot of time. Rob called me personally after purchasing it to thank me which is top notch.

Jig for wooden dowel hinges

Very easy to use the jig with premade dowels. Had a devil of time making my own dowels of cherry for the cherry tea boxes (4) that I was making. Getting the hang of making your own dowels takes a good bit of practice.
