I recently started to transform my van into a small RV. Some time ago I finished the bed, but there was still a door missing to hide the portable toilet. In deliberating the hinge options, I came across a simple wooden hinge design, that looked appropriate for this application.

I’m still fairly new at woodworking, so I always like to try out new techniques. Your hinge fitted the profile and was reasonably easy and quick to accomplish. I did have some trouble finding the brass rod, but that worked out in the end. Keep on posting!
