Question
Hi Eileen,

I have been searching to replace my antique armoire door hinge that fell out during a move but I've had no luck.  In my search, I came across a post that you answered several years ago where the user needed to fix the wood that surrounded the hinge / pin (see link below).  My question is this; do you know of any online resources that sells these replacements?  I appreciate any insight you might have.  Thanks!

Answer
Hi Jennifer
Nice to hear from you.
The only possible source could be this

http://www.vandykes.com/Category.aspx?ss=&c=393&sb=&sd=&pgnum=1&pgsize=&filter=

However I very much fear a replacement will not be found unless its taken off a junked piece.
But look through this link.
Perhaps something suitable will be found.
Regards
Eileen

Expertise

Hi..I can answer most questions about the repairing,stripping and refinishing of all your old furniture and wood items(the things we call antiques)I can give advice about what to buy/avoid at auctions/flea markets. I do not give appraisals on antiques.

Experience

I have been refinishing antiques for the past 30yrs. While I have taken several courses over the years,I have found that "hands on" learning is the best teacher. Perhaps I can help you avoid some of the mistakes I made while learning.
