I've not had this situation, but I'll take a stab at a solution. I'm guessing you should fit an oversized medium to hard balsa block in to the foam core. By oversize, I mean bigger than the hinges. I would try to size it so that when you epoxy it into the foam, at least one surface (upper or lower) will epoxy to the obeechi skin. Best for both to contact the skin. Then you can cut a typical slit (or drill a hole like for Robart hinge points)into the balsa wood block to glue the hinge to.
