hi, has anybody made their own hinge jig for 3 hinge doors. the trend ones are expensive. it would need to be reversable like the trends to suit left and right handed doors. I have googled and looked on youtube but can only find jigs for single hinges.
any pictures, videos or plans would be great .thanks

If you do a load of doors a Trend jig is the way to go. I have my own single hinge jig I made and it speed clamps on and does the job. It really does not take long to move along and clamp on for each position. It would not be too difficult to make up a dedicated three hinge jig I suppose?

Yes, I have on quite a few occasions. Generally something like 12mm MR-MDF will do with softwood for locator battens and you need to screw them onto the dooor casing and door when you use them, however they don't really last all tha long so these days I use the Trend jig mentioned by DWD.
