Default INCRA Hinge Crafter

I am wondering from any users of this gadget, the species of wood that has given them good results for wooden hinges. The videos seem to show maple and walnut? maybe for the contrast??? Seems like the grain of the wood needs to be smooth, and the strength needs to be high???._Lee

I have used cherry and oak with good results, Lee

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Hi Bob. Here is one I made in oak(white oak, I think). I also should still have a business card case I made from cherry laminated with bloodwood, but at this moment I am not sure where it is! I have moved twice since I made it. Both were made with the old original Incra hinge jig, also pictured.

Ah, found it. I made this some 15+ years ago, when I was relatively new to woodworking. It has walnut end caps, had forgotten that!
