Thread: Hinge help needed

  1. #1

    Hinge help needed

    Being out of my league here I need some help with hinges for a small box. From what I've seen, most overlay or similar type hinges are designed for 3/4" material. I have 1/2" material on a frameless box. I need a hinge for my situation and can't find it (see link to sketch). Does the hinge in my sketch exist and if so where do I go to get it? Thanks for your help!!

    They make that style, but most are 3/4 to 3/4 material, so you may have to do a 1/4" shim or drill a few new holes in the hinge where needed.

    Google "Box Lid Hinge" or "lid hinge" for more results.

    Gotta say, That's a nice picture you drew. Made it very clear what the issue was.

    I came here to say the same thing. (Well, that, and to suggest a shim, too.) That's either some professional-level drafting, or a really cool SketchUp plugin.

    LOL! No, that's just an engineering pad. I wasn't at home so it was quicker to draw a sketch. I'm an engineer but love to play with wood. I'm just not good or fast enough at it to make a living out of it. Thanks for all your help!

    Welcome and glad you found us, Brad. That looks like quite a substantial hinge for a 1/2" material box. I wonder if some small butt hinges would do the job just as well. These Brusso's are very pricey but IMHO worth it for a special box. There are probably similar, less expensive ones out there too.
