Attaching the fallfront to the desk unit

Set the hinges in their mortises in the desk unit and mark the screw holes, then drill pilot holes and screw the hinge leaves in place, leaving the fasteners a little loose. Mark the drilling depth on the drill bit by wrapping a strip of masking tape around it. Next, extend the lopers and set the fallfront in position, slipping the free hinge leaves into their mortises. Mark the screw holes, drill pilot holes, and screw the hinges to the fall-front, then finish tightening all the screws (right). If you are using brass screws, be careful not to overtighten them or they will break. It is a good idea to drive in a standard wood screw first to tap the pilot hole.
