Chiseling out for the hinges
Holding the door steady
The new door was turned on edge and held steady between two blocks of wood which were clamped to another piece of wood.
An indent was made around the hinge outline mark with a sharp chisel.
The depth of the indent was the same as the thickness of the hinge.Chiseling out the hinge area
The hinge area was chiseled out with a sharp chisel.
The depth of the area chiseled out was the same as the thickness of the hinge.
Once the hinge areas were chiseled out, one side of each of the hinges was screwed in place. The other side of the hinges were still in the jamb; they never had to be taken off.
