George Vondriska teaches you how to properly drill a hole for the hinge pin that allows a wooden hinge to pivot. He shows you how to use a white charcoal pencil and a square to find the center on the wood, and he likes to use an extra long drill bit and the quarter-inch slot on a dowel jig to guarantee that the boring is perfectly straight and through.
