5c. Brush the backside of the page with glue. Place the page
with the pointed tabs positioned into and against the walls of the
cache box, smoothing all areas of the page to ensure contact.
6. HINGE THE DOOR
6a. Place the “door” book on your work surface, with what’s to be
its underside facing up. Working along its paged edge, place each
hinge 1" from each end of the cover, so that the hinge is lying flat
and the hinge pin rests over the cover’s edge. Mark the screw
hole positions with a Sharpie.
6b. Using the t" bit, drill each hole just deep enough to accommodate the screw. You may need to use your hand or a spring
clamp to place pressure on the cover to keep the pages from
separating while drilling. Brush the dust from the cover, and
align the first hinge with the drilled leads.
Working with 1 drilled lead at a time, squirt just enough hot glue
into the lead to fill it, and immediately slide the screw into place
before the glue begins to set. Repeat with the 3 remaining holes.
6c. Position the hinged book at the edge of the top hollowed
book, so that the unattached hinges lay flat and the hinge pins
rest over the edge of the cover. Mark the screw placement as
before. Remove the book, drill the screw leads, and use the same
hot glue method to secure the remaining hinge screws.
Close the lid, allow the glue to set, and gather your stashables!
