I am building some base cabinets for my shop. Carcasses are just about done, legs are in the mail, and I need to think about hinges. The cabinets are constructed of 3/4” plywood, and are faceless (I will be adding some solid stock to the front to conceal the plywood edges, but no overhang). The cabinet has 4 main sections, the two outer sections will have doors, the inner 2 sections have drawers. Doors will be frame & panel construction.
I would like to have hidden hinges, and have 1/4” overlay all around the door. I’ve never bought hinges and am looking for some guidance. I believe what I need are 1/4” full overlay hinges, correct? I searched at HD’s website and found these results.
Most list different overlay lengths, some don’t list any overlay length, I see one that lists 1/4” overlay, but the picture makes it look like it is built for a framed cabinet construction.
Can someone help me decipher what it is I need?
Thanks a lot, in advance.
