Subject:
hinge mortise - single or double?

DizD
I've seen references to mortising both hinge leaves into one side and surface mounting other leaf on door. Carlyle Lynch has this technique in one of his plans where he suggests flattening the hinge in a vise first. Are there pitfalls to be aware of with a single mortise?
