  • 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.

      Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

      Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry
