I have a problem building a toy box using frame panel construction. I decided to make an offset frame so the legs stick out from the rails. Now I have a problem with the hinges for the top. If I install hinges on the rail, the top will hit the leg posts since they stick out farther. I can only think of 2 solutions.
1. Use door type hinges cantilevered over the rail so that the back of the hinge lines up with the back of the posts
2. Beef up the top rail by adding a 3/8” thick strip to the rail making it flush with the back of the legs, and then I can use a standard piano hinge
What would be the best solution to this problem? – any other ideas?
