I’m building a frameless kitchen with overlaid doors on euro hinges.
I’ve built the cabinets as individual units, meaning where they come together there is a 1 1/2” edge band (in this case I’m using 3/4” thick material). In some spots, adjoining cabinets also have the hinges facing each other.
I’m totally confused about which hinges and plates to get, and even what my options are for overlays. I wanted to start building doors today but thought better of it until I really understand the hinges.
My doors will be 7/8” thick.
Where hinges face each other, I’d like to be able to overlay each door 5/8” (on my 3/4” plywood).
On the two end runs, I’d like to use a 1/2” overlay, to keep the same 1/4” reveal.
Between pairs of doors I’d use a 3/32” or 1/8” reveal.
Please help! Can’t proceed until I understand this and Blum is closed until Monday.
Many thanks, all.
