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.

    Amazing little jig

    I bought the 3/8" a few weeks back and after building my first box went straight back and ordered the 1/4" ... great little jigs, really elegant hinge detail on box, so much nicer and neater (and cheaper) than brass hinges.

    If you want to make a wood hinge box, you need this

    This simple device is brilliant. It works great, and I certainly don't want to attempt to make this myself. Thanks for providing this nice tool Rob!

    a MUST have for perfect dowel hinge boxes!

    Being perfectly centered is a NECESSITY for dowel hinges, and not only are Rob's techniques a MUST, so are his jigs. I should have bought the whole set, I probably will eventually. LOVE yer style of teaching and your attention to detail Rob. Keep it up!
