Piano Bench With Storage – Piano hinges are an excellent tool for storage units due to their dimensions and very long resulting stability and smoothness. The opening of a lid or door that is joined by a piano hinge is easy and quiet. These hinges can be easily installed in storage units, such as cabinets, cabinets and storage benches, replacing old hardware. This replacement only requires a minimum of additional tools and materials beyond the hinges, although enough wood screws to provide a secure coupling.
Open the storage bench and unscrew the hinges that are currently connected. Remove the hinges and replace the storage bank cover on top of the bench. Place the piano hinge on the sideboard of the storage bench, either on the top surface of the side storage bench plate or on the outer surface of the side storage bench, depending on the thickness of the plate and the appearance wanted. Arrange the hinge so that its other section falls directly under the storage bin lid and the entire hinge is even.
Drill holes in each mark, being careful not to go through the board to the other side. Replace the hinge and attach the hinge to the side plate with 1/2 inch wood screws. Place the other half of the hinge on the bottom of the storage bench cover with the help of a wizard. Mark the location of screw holes on the hinge every 12 inches at the bottom of the cap with a pencil. Punch holes in each mark and attach the piano hinge to the lid with 1/2 inch wood screws. Test the cap for swinging and smooth operation, and make the necessary adjustments by removing the screws and installing them in new holes.
