I recently built a small kitchen base cabinet with a beaded face frame.
I’m wondering about mortising butt hinges into the bead. Would this look strange?
How is this typically handled? Somehow get the hinge barrel to line up with the bead and be the same diameter? Or just mortise it as needed and let it be? But seems you’d be chopping out about half the bead, in my case with a 1/4” diameter bead.
