I find this a handy skill to have, because sometimes, the right hinges aren't available to buy. This was the case in my Liquor Cabinet from a few years ago. The door was to be a work surface, and small hinges would not hold up in the long run. Using the same techniques described in the article, I was able to make hinges using 3/16" brass and a 3/16" pin.
