Use good hinges

Why?  See the pictures to find out.  Bench Made Woodworking in Cincinnati shared these pictures with us.  The hinges photographed are from a pretty well known brand that was spec’d out by the architect on this job.  If you’re anything like me, you might have some objections if they were in your kitchen.  We would suggest trying our PB-410B hinges as an alternative-we are quite confident the plating won’t peel.

New Product!

Well I am always excited about adding new stuff. We now have a beautiful small box hinge in nickel. It is the same PB-405 extruded brass hinge we have had for years in a new finish. It just came in today so I don’t have a picture, but you can see the brass one and order them all here PB-405 Box Hinge. It is exceptionally well made and sized for wood as thin as 1/2″ thick. I hope you like it. As always, comments are welcome.
