been there, done that kdc
edit: but upon further review, I may be able to use half overlay. Pic and description of overlay hinges on page linked here., show a 3/16 gap between doors when using half overlay. If material is 3/4 thick, depiction shows an overlay of one half of 9/16 per door. Pert near a quarter

Standard overlay is a little more than 5/16” – I think
1/4” is within the range of adjustment of a standard
half-overlay cup hinge, but you can tweak the drilling
distance a little on the door, maybe 2mm either way.

Standard drilling distance for a 35mmm cup hinge is
the center of the hole is inset 23mm from the edge
of the door. You can try 21mm for a little less overlay
or 25mm for a little more. Make mockups to check
for problems before committing to drilling a door though.

Thanks Loren, sounds close enough. I thought half overlay was 3/8, then adjust the gap. Thanks again.

Have your say...
