In defense of Mr Lynch's method.

The article in question (I'm pretty sure although the OP does not mention it by name) mentions this technique for a cock beaded light door on a huntboard. The goal is to keep from cutting a hinge mortise into the cock bead. The hinge is offset into the leg of the huntboard and does not overlap the cock bead. I too build for generations but do not hesitate to follow the advice of a furniture maker I respect. I would not use this method with a heavy door.
