Hi, this is Jon, and in this clip we will be installing the hinges. First we need to take our drill and set it up with a pilot bit. Now, basically it's just a drill bit that is a little bit smaller than the size of the screw. On each of these pieces we're just going to come in and drill a small pilot hole on each of those dots that we drew. Next we're going to take our hinges and place them in position, and with a screwdriver we're just going to put a few screws in. Now you can do this with the drill, however you do risk breaking the head off the screw because of how much power the drill has. Continue all the way around your project until all of the hinges are installed. Once installed you can test it out and make sure it works properly.
