Designing a cabinet without thinking first about hinges can lead to trouble. For example, this cabinet I built without considering how the doors would be attached.
The sides’ front edges are angled. I figured they would be closer to facing the cabinet’s curve.
Depending on where I place a 90 degree line in relation to where the end of the side’s inner face ends, an angle to near the the start of the curve can be 120 – 125 degreees.
Have looked at blum 120 degree inset, half overlay, full overlay, and 110 degree cross corner hinges.
The goal is to get the door fronts to not sit proud of the stainless steel sink front.
The door fronts extend below the bottom of the cabinet.
Any suggestions of ways out of this problem?
That is hinge problem A.
Hinge problem B is that the next cabinet is to have sides that angle at 62.2 degrees toward the middle front of the cabinet. The 42” is along the back of the cabinet. It has slanted doors on each side and a regular 90 degree door on the front. Any suggestions of ways to hinge those full overlay doors? At least this one isn’t started yet.
