I am building a cabinet out of ply and making face frames for it that are going to be 3/4” x 3/4” (basically frameless I think is the proper term here, it’s basically just using the wood to make “edge banding”). The door, when closed, would be 1/4” offset from the edge of the cabinet inward so only 1/2” of the door would be on the frame itself in this setting. I thought I’d be able to use the above hinges but then after a conversation with a colleague realized that there are many different types and then went back to look at the link. Turns out they are 1-1/4” face frame overlay hinges which to be quite honest I’m not sure what that means. Does that mean my face frame, to still sit the same way I wanted it to originally, needs to be 1-1/2” wide and 3/4” deep?
If someone could shed some light on my particular setup I’d really appreciate it.
