I am working on a bookcase that is three pieces. The main cabinet is the largest piece, with two “doors” that are also casework that will be hinged onto the main cabinet. The main cabinet will be set on a base that extends to the front of the “doors”, so I would like to use some sort of pivot hinge.
The effect I am going for is something that looks like a box when it is all closed up, but opens to reveal shelving and books in each piece.
I have a couple questions about this:
!. Is this a casework/design style that has a name?
2. What style of pivot hardware would work best for this?
I’ve attached a pic of something sort of like what I want – 3 hinged pieces, and a base. However I don’t want to use typical door hinges, as I need them to hold a significant amount of weight.
