Installing the hinges on the doors

Secure one of the doors hinge-edge up in a bench vise. Outline one hinge leaf about 6 inches from the top of the door and another 6 inches from the bottom. Then, holding a chisel vertically, score the outline and cut it slightly deeper than the thickness of the hinge leaf. Hold the chisel bevel up to pare the waste from the mortise (above). Once you have cleared out the remaining mortises on both doors, set the hinges in their mortises, drill pilot holes, and screw them in place.
