I am building a large, hanging jewelry case of my own design, although I have seen similar ones for sale in catalogs. The wood is walnut and the case is 13/16” thick & 5” deep. It is approximately 16” X 50” so the door can hold a standard 12” X 48” mirror. I purchased Liberty 1 1/4” Faceframe Overlay Hinges and a 35mm forester bit to drill the proper size hole in the door frame. My mirrored door frame is also walnut 13/16” X 2 1/4” and rabbeted to hold the mirror and backing board. I would drill the 35mm hole in the door frame along with the two adjacent 8mm screw holes and then drill small holes for the two tabs on the other side of the hinge in the inside wall of the case. There is also a screw which holds the hinge to the case in an adjustable piece which allows about a 1/32” adjustment in or out. My door frame extends 9/32nds outside the case on all four sides.
I bought these hinges thinking they were the proper ones for my project, but the measurements for installing these type of hinges were not included and I am having a difficult time figuring out the exact placement of the 35mm hole and the adjacent 8mm screw holes in the inside of the door frame and the exact placement of the holes on the inside of the case for the two tabs on the other side of the hinge.
I looked online and have not seen these hinges used in this type of application, although it appears they should work. What I am looking for is if anyone has installation instructions and/or measurements for this type of application.
I can send a few pictures to make my dilemma a little more clear if that will help. I need to know the exact place to drill and install my hinges.
