Cabinet Hinges ... Again
I've built my bathroom sink cabinet, got it all put together, granite, plumbing, all that's left are the doors and the drawer fronts.
Wife and I selected some premade doors with matching drawer fronts. I know I want the European hinges, but as this is my intro to cabinet making / figure it out session before I do the kitchen, I need help.
This is what I'm getting for the doors....
Under the options, it list a prebore for the hinges. The options are cup only, or cup & dowel. Also, each of those has a 3mm or 6mm offset.
My cabinet has a face of 1 1/2" wide x 3/4" deep. The doors will only be able to open 90-120* due to the walls.
Can you help me select which hinge is best for my application?
How much is the overlay? (how big is the opening--how big is the door?)
Look at the hinge setback---most common have the door overlay 1/2" larger than the opening---on all sides--
Go to a hardware site for a drawing---or go next door to Woodworking Talk---(Link at bottom of the page)---Mike--
I found a great source of info named Rip from HardwareSource.com. Got my hinges ordered. I appreciate your help.
