Topic tags/keywords: question design

is there such a thing as a hinge for a mitered corner? I am planning a design for jewelry boxes for my girls for Christmas and I would like to have one continuous back and have the wings spread out from there…rather than having a 3 sectioned back Like this:

im not sure what you mean by soss…I would like to keep the look the same with the inlaid Hinge, but I guess a fancy wrap hinge could work, but I think it would look odd unless i matched it on the front…

soss hinges are like barrel hinges , but have a mounting flange also they must be moticed into the work and expand open ,
they might not work for this , as you must “relieve the space behind the knuckle so they can open ..
look in rockler or lee valley for specialty hinges .

A soss hinge would be great ifyou’re trying to keep it hidden, but I don’t know if the sides would be thick enough to accomidate the mortice. Would be worth looking into because it would look real nice. If that’s doesn’t work, then a regular butt hinge like they show in the picture you have, only on the mitter.
