Continued Adventures Of My Cabinets


So I have advance further along and now have decided to switch out the cabinet hinges.. why cause the old ones were full of old varnish, stain, rust, and grease. I could clean but already have new knobs so complete the look new hinges too. The problem is The House Of Wonders had yet another surprise. The hinges and the cabinet door overhang.i measured the cabinet overhang and I got 5/16 ... Wait what 5/16, I am still quadruple checking this as I am idiot. So the doors are supposed to be a 3/8 inset / Partial. I am confused and unsure of what hinges to get. I look at the old ones and they are no help at all. Any ideas or suggestions. Thanks

Re: Continued Adventures Of My Cabinets


Is the advertised inset the depth sideway or the depth as for the thickness of the door?

I would go to Rockler. http://www.rockler.com/3-8quot-inset-hinges. I see you're from Minnesota...Rockler has stores in the Twin Cities. Best to go in person if at all possible. Bring the old hinge, and a door, and the measurements of the hole. Should be able to figure it out.

I guess in the worst case, you could do a little chisel and router work to make them fit.

Re: Continued Adventures Of My Cabinets


So after contacting three separate hardware companies in search of a 5/8 inset cabinet hinges, they only produce only one which I have included a website too and you can find this same exactly on various websites. So now the question is now is this do I try to figure out a European hinge configuration or end up paying out the nose for new hinges roughly ($200). Any ideas that doesn't involve replacing the cabinets (that was of the suggestions today) or a lot of modifications. Thank You

Gee Swede, $200 for cabinet hinges isn't bad. It's always sticker shock when you start adding up the cost of hardware for cabinets. I built my own kitchen and hinges, drawer slides, knobs and pulls must have run 600 bucks at least. That was 13 cabinets.

I can see that $200 probably isn't that bad, but it just part of owning a home and having a out dated, old fashion cabinets. Also I see 3/8 Inset hinges going for a buck or two a piece. Why I was so sticker shock is that I have a project list about ten miles long and I need to save money. Just finished having the chimney repaired every dollar saved is another dollar put towards another project that this House of Wonders need fixing. Just another example of the common place occurrence that happens. I needed someone to lay a cement patio, I couldn't it do to the lack of knowledge of how to do it especially when it is a stepped/multi-leveled anyways it couldn't be done unless I first replace my retaining wall. We are 1 Year and 1 month in this new house. I have documented a lot of stuff of this house. A lot people have helped me out.
