I am completing a re-facing job (roughly 40 doors) and all is great except for one hinge. I had to move the hinge up 5/16" on the inner cabinet to accommodate for a reposition of the door. The holes were too close and one blew out and the hinge is loose. I figure that bondo should work to patch but I will need to re-drill and then re-mount the hinge. I can't move the hinge on the door side because they are all soft maple stained/pre drilled. Is there a better way or a better product to use for a melamine patch that will allow me to re-drill and re-mount? Any help would be much appreciated.
From contributor F:
You sure cant hang a door from bondo. As this is on the inside of a cabinet, I would swallow mortise in a piece of solid wood or at least some melamine that is at least as thick as the penetration of the hinge plate screws. You can always laminate some white p-lam on a solid wood patch. I would think your client can be understanding that things wont be perfect on a reface.
