How to Install Coffee Table Hinges

Installing coffee table hinges is relatively simple but requires attention to detail and accuracy. Follow these steps to successfully install the hinges:

Step One: Prepare the Table

  • Check the table’s edges and surface for rough spots, splinters, and loose chunks of wood.
  • If the surface is rough, sand it down until smooth.
  • Use a measuring tape and pencil to mark the areas for hinge installation.

Step Two: Install the Hinges

  • After markings are made, carefully use a drill and appropriate-sized screw bit to insert pilot holes.
  • Align the hinges with the holes, making sure all screw holes meet the wood.
  • Secure the hinge to the table with metal screws. Tighten each screw until the hinges are completely secured.

Step Three: Test the Table

  • Ensure that the hinges open and close properly.
  • Run your finger down the edge of the table and make sure there are no rough edges.
  • Check to make sure the screws are firmly in place.
  • Secure any loose screws and take the table for a test run!

And there you have it! With a bit of patience and accuracy, you can now install coffee table hinges with ease.
