I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to route some recesses for hinges in a cabin door.
I don't think I will be doing this very regularly, so I would prefer something fast & cheap & diy - I'm sure there's a lot of great proper solutions for this, but right now I just want to get the job done and there's only 4 doors to make
I was thinking about something like the Rockler's concealed hinge jig. It seems fairly simple to make.
But. For my hinges, I need a 35mm recess. My plunge router has a 16mm copy collar and I have bits like 6mm and 12mm (Sorry for the metric measures, but it's easier for me to keep the information correct).
So I made an excel sheet and figured that for the 6mm bit to work I'd need a 45mm hole in the template. For the 12mm, the hole would have to be 39mm.
Unfortunately, I don't have a matching hole saw, I have 44m, but no 45mm. So this idea doesn't seem to be that simple after all.
Are there any other methods that would work for this? I was kind of hoping to get this done without buying any new tools
