I’m looking for some good reliable HEAVY DUTY KERF CUT HINGES. I have only been able to find some for small projects. The specific project I would like to use these on are for a chair so this needs to support the weight of a person. I like that a kerf cut hinge is mostly concealed. I’m open to similar solutions if anyone has some suggestions.

Regards

The heaviest kerf cut hinges I’ve seen are YoungDale. I’m not sure that’s going to be heavy enough though.

Might I recommend at least a 10mm barrel hinge. Minimum thickness for the wood is 1/2. I would not use a kerf hinge… to small and then you have to think about the thickness of wood on either side… then there are the small barbs. Yes, they are good for boxes ect but if your wanting the person to be on the floor… after the hinge breaks, that’s another story.
