Greetings fellow lumberjocks,
I apologize if this is not technically a joinery question. But it’s as close as I could figure among the different forums.
I’ve been working on improving my joinery skills by making a series of wooden boxes with dovetails. And I’m planning on making my next projects with hinges recessed on the inside of the inside of the box rather than just screwed in on the outside on the back.
My problem is that I buy all my hardware and accessories online. And while I have the skills to cut the recesses, I’m not sure which hinges to buy that are made specifically for this as opposed to what I described as on the outside/back.
For instance, I’ve looked at these two on Rockler but I don’t know if they’re different in terms of what I’m doing or if it doesn’t really matter which of these kinds of simple hinges I buy to do what I’m describing.
Any pointers on this front I’d be really grateful for. I’m just hoping not to order online and finally get them and then realize I’ve bought a kind that won’t work for what I’m trying to do.
