Re: hinge installation, when all else fails

Looks great. When I work on the houses I flip I carry a bag of plugs cut from wood similar to the door jambs. Any damaged screw holes get drilled and plugged. The grain in the plugs is in the same orientation as the jam so the screws get a good grip and they expand the plugs extra tight in the holes.
