I recently made 25 doors for my custom cabinets. The doors are of the inset variety and are about 1” thick as is the face frame. In the past, I only made 3/4” doors and used butt hinges that measured 1 5/8” wide. This size hinge worked perfectly for the 3/4” thick doors, but I am not sure if I need larger hinges for my new 1” thick doors. I want to be sure that I am ordering the correct hinges as they are quite pricey.
So the question is: can I use 1 5/8” wide butt hinges for 1” thick doors or should I use a larger size?
Thanks for any advice you may have!
