Doors and gates, box, chest, and trunk lids, lockets and bracelets—they all need hinges. In this class you will make a pair of simple butterfly hinges, suitable for use on a cupboard, small chest, or box.
You will learn how to form the eye around the pin, how to adjust the eye so that the hinge turns, how to make the second leaf fit the first, and how to put them together.
Gift Certificates for Butterfly Hinges are available.
