So, I made a large built in for my sister with 4 small cabinet doors in it. I made the doors from MDF sized for a 1/4” overlay all the way around instead of 1/2” overlay like I have in the past. I was thinking I could get some 1/4” overlay concealed hinges but as it turns out my local shops only have 1/2” overlay concealed hinges.
I have tried adjusting them in closer together all the way but it’s not close enough…... still a gap between the two doors that were meant for a 1/4” overlay. So basically there is a 1/2” gap between my two doors where they meet when closed…...
Is there any way I can make the 1/2” hinges work? Maybe by redrilling the holes in the door a little nearer the edges? I would build more doors but the entire thing has already been painted…..
I know I could just use regular hinges on the face frames but my sister was really wanting the concealed hinge look. Any ideas?
