    Question Hinge Help?

    OK, so I feel like I'm going blind looking at hinges. Such a simple thing, too! But, here are the preferred specifications:
    - Frameless
    - Full overlay
    - Fully concealed
    - Non-Euro (SWMBO doesn't want the bulky hinges to show)

    Door frame is 1.5" wide. Panels are 3/4" thick.

    Suggestions?

    I may have to go that route, Larry. I would have to put the top hinge in the frame of the cabinet top and I was trying to avoid that. I was also wanting to find something with at least a little adjustment capability.

    Those are a lot like Soss hinges which are very good but very pricey. When LOML sees the cost of those, she might decide Euros don't look so bad after all!

    I'd tell the wife tough cookie, your getting Euro hinges. Adjustment is childlike in simplicity is my reasoning, plus you can do fancy things like soft close pretty economically.

    When she saw the cost of a couple of alternatives, along with the complexity of one of the angles, she agreed that Euros are fine. I ordered them today.

    Now, as to the 'tough cookie' part, I'll leave that up to you!
