Lets Put Hinges on New Doors in the Easy and Simple Way

If you are hanging new doors off old frames, you would probably have to cut or mortise new hinges off the gate. New doors, also called door blanks, have got level sides without any accessible hinge places. 

This design permits you to keep the hinges anywhere you would like on the door entrance to match exists frames. 

You could put away some money when building a home for buying door blanks and cutting the hinge mortises from yourself. You could do it with a chisel and hammer.

(1) Transfer the hinge places through the door frame and if your frame already has got hinge mortises, stand the door inside the frame as if it were already installed in the frame. 

Use a pencil to mark the hinge mortise places on the door blank. Take off the door through the frame. If neither the frame nor the door has got hinge mortises, then leave out this step.

(2) Set the door off its own side, with the inside edge of the door exact where the hinges would go facing up, on the behalf of stable surface, for instance a work bench.
(3) Keep the hinge plate in the cutout tracing. 

If it does not fit flat, use the chisel to scrape and cut the bottom, sides or corners of the tracing until or unless the plate fits level in the tracing. Tap the plate in the cutout with a hammer if you require it.

(4) Screw the hinge precisely in the cutout while using a cordless gun and 1 inch screws.
