I feel your frustration!

I have undertaken a JK inspired cabinet, and have had my fair share of problems also, especially with the knife hinges- amongst other things. Research has led me to believe he had relied upon files and rasps for fine tuning(his talent, skill, and master craftsmanship also factored in.) I could be mistaken however, on the files that is. Manipulating the hinges may help to solve the problem, minor tweaks, shims, or adjustments by minor bends may help.

I now fully realize why the title of master cabinetmaker is held in such high esteem.

Sorry I’m not much help, but I am sure you will prevail with an outcome to your liking.
