I need some help understanding which type of hinge i need for the below design. Any thoughts would be appreciated. i’m building this credenza from ply/edge banding.
the first photo shows the front face. there is a 3/4” face frame all the way around the box, and each door/drawer has a 1/4” edging on 4 sides. hence on the outer frame there will always be 3/4” and 1/4” edging. on the interior, there will be two 1/4” edgings next to each other. this symmetry is what i’m trying to keep
in the second photo you will see the decorative edging on the top/sides also is 1/4”. to keep only 1/4 of edging showing consistently around the edge the drawers/doors need to be under/flush with the face frame – ie not showing from the top view.
In the third and forth photo you see the inside where the hinges need to be installed. I am hoping they are all hidden hinges. on the left, maybe some form of inset hinge would suffice? in between the two doors there is no hinge obviously but i point out that the partition wall will be set back by 3/4” so the doors can close completely. the tricky side is on the right. To maintain the symmetry (two 1/4” edgings next to each other) where the door and drawer meet, i need to hide the 3/4 partition edging. to do this i need to set back the partition from the front face by 3/4”. the door is technically flush with the face frame but it needs to be mounted to the partition which is set back from the face.
I really don’t know what type of hinge is required here?? i know this is wordy, but can help me out specifically defining what each of these two hinges are? overlay, inset, partial, euro or traditional? I guess they need to be separate types given the configutation
