- May 27, 2004Got it in one. I took them to the anvil out back and bent them
90degrees to wrap them around the top. It incidentally bent the things
RIGHT ON TOP OF two of my nail holes. Grrr. So up close it doesn't
look right. But nobody but me seems to look that close.

Ok, while you guys are on this subject, I've been wondering.....
If you mount the hinges with the strap on the inside of the top then
the hinge pin would end up in the what I consider the correct
position... at the gap between the top and the bottom of the box.
However, If you keep the hinge on the outside, then the actual hinge
pin would end up aligned with the top of the top. To me this looks
kind of funky.
Do you bend the hinges 90 degrees at a point even with the thickness
of the top of the box above the hinge pin? Essentially so the hinge
strap wraps around the back of the top and over the top?
