reinstaling old shutters w/new hinges
I live in an over 70-year old house, which I've been trying to wrap a complete refurbishing up of...
The pins on the hinges of an original set of wooden shutters were rusted, and I finally located "replacements.'
Question is: after getting the old hinges off both the window and shutters, I was panning to mount the new ones in the same place. Should I reinforce the holes for screws with wood fill (or maybe epoxy) before re-mounting them?
I expect I could try to mount them in another place (higher or lower) and 'start over' with screw holes.. but not sure the placement would look as well.
THANK YOU for your (woodworking) educated advice/suggestions, I much appreciate it -
