Hidden hinges for 1/2" doors


Are there some good euro hinges for cabinet doors that are only 1/2" thick? These doors were made from scraps, and turned out a little thinner than usual!

I'm not aware of any cup hinges that will work in a 1/2" thick door. Check Blum's website.

Perhaps you could fasten a 1/4" plywood block where you want to mount the hinge! Then drill into this!

I believe most euro cup hinges require a 7/16" deep 35mm forstner hole. If you have a true 1/2" of thickness, you can maybe try to really carefully do only the required 7/16" and not punch through the front. That would require a drill press though to get that kind of depth eveness and accuracy. This is a pretty dangerous idea, but an idea nonetheless.
