Reinforce Plywood for Hinge Screws




Plywood edges don’t provide a very good anchor for hinge screws. So while building a wooden toy box that had a piano-hinged lid, I reinforced the plywood edge by routing a groove and gluing in a strip of solid wood. This provides a strong place for the hinge screws, and should hold tight for many years.
