Concealed hinges, sometimes called “European style,” have become a popular option for cabinet doors. They stay out of sight, are easy to install, mount in a variety of configurations, and are fully adjustable afterward.
Installing them, though, requires drilling a large hole at a very specific position and depth. Attempting to drill the large holes with a hand-held
or even a drill press, can be tricky.
A smart solution is to use a jig, like the new Kreg
Concealed Hinge Jig
. The jig allows you to drill cup holes for concealed cabinet door hinges cleanly and to a precise depth using just a hand drill.
