Long story short, i am building a doll case for a friends doll. I have the basic design, it’s 4 side glass with solid top and bottom. I’m stuck on how to put a door into this, need to be able to put doll in this thing. Any ideas? . I think I’m oing to put a small hinged door on the back side, but any other ideas would certainly be welcomed. Thanks

How about installing a couple of small set screws on each side of the base or top or use a brass rod that goes from bottom to top and use a fancy lamp shade nut to hold it all together and the rod serves as a holding point for the doll…. If your going to use wood for the corners then use some small brass screws to hold the top and bottom and use mushroom plugs to cover the top holes which can be removed later if need and put felt on the bottom to cover those holes, those are my quick thoughts…..

Stereo cabinet hinges. They hold a 1/4” piece of glass and
are swing from holes in the top and bottom. I’m sure you can
find them for sale but they are easily salvaged as well.

Look on ebay for “glass door hinge”.

Here is something that might work
