If you plan on using hidden or concealed hinges (A.K.A European hinge or Euro hinge) to hang your cabinet doors you will soon learn that most concealed euro/cup hinges require a large cup hole and two smaller holes for either screws or some sort of dowel. Our pre-boring option allows you to have these cups and dowel holes professionally drilled ensuring accurate and uniform cup and dowel holes.
The illustration below explains the different preboring options available.

Prebore hole counts: Depending on the vertical height, cabinet doors will have 2, 3, or 4 holes. The following list describes measurements for each:
- 0-49" height = 2 holes
- 50"-75" height = 3 holes
- Above 75" height = 4 holes
If you prefer different hole counts please indicate this in the additional notes portion during checkout.
