Hinging MDF
Hi, I have bought some thin 3mm MDF to make a farm layout for my Grandson. I am trying to fix the 2 sides together but the wood is too thin for hinges. I have tried glueing them on but that didn't work to well. Any ideas please

Your materials way to thin.

Tape? As in Duct tape?

Here are some ideas.
1. Piano hinge or any hinge. Bolt and nut.
2. Epoxy like JB weld, but if wood to metal bond does not fail, a skin of mdf may fail.
3. glue and nail 1x2 along the hinge side.
4. Duct tape idea :thumbup: although gorilla tape would not peel off.
