Hi folks, I've been going nuts trying to figure this one out. Every time I think I am on the right track, I find out the product isn't available, or isn't what I need.
I am trying to make a shelf space in a wall, covered with a wooden plank, with hidden hinges. The attached picture shows the basic idea. I could use either style of opening, but the wood covers and overlaps the opening by an inch on the top and bottom, so I can't use a regular hinge.
The 1" overlap is what is making selection a challenge. If you modify your design to 5/8" overlay, there are numerous hinges available. 3/4" overlay would be a little less common, but still available. For 1" you can look at the Compact Series -- they are intended to mount on face frame cabinets, but you may be able to make them work for your application --- see pages 82 and 89.
