  • Metal hinge to wood-epoxy?

    I'm thinking of a couple of picture frame projects, and want an easel-type of back. I would use a small metal hinge, and thin wood, 1/8, or 1/4, for the easel. Would epoxy adhere the metal to the wood? I would think tiny wood screws would strip out the wood fairly easy, or maybe use the epoxy on the screws when I install?
    Appreciate the help!

    I have tried the epoxy way, attaching the hinges to the wood with epoxy and ... it did not work quite well, maybe it was the type of epoxy o maybe it was me, but the thing did not held enough and the hinges came loose. so what i did was a wooden hinge and that seem to work well and looked much better to me. I tried not to use metal as much as i can.

      I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

      If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

      The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

      I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
