Help with Hinges

Hi,

Not an X carve project but i need a little advice. I’ve build a storage box which goes behind my sofa up against a all. I’ve got a thick 1.5" x 10" length to make the top from. I’d like the tops to hinge up from the back edge however using a normal kitchen door hinge the top hits in to the wall before it can open. Is there a special kind of hinge which would push the top forward before opening to clear the wall?

Thanks.

I’ve found these, i don’t know what they are officaly called but i found them on a google search for “lift hinge”

I can’t however picture the movement and if they will work. I’ve ordered a pair from amazon and will try.

Try searching for a face frame euro hinge. https://www.google.com/search?q=face+frame+euro+hinges&rlz=1C1GGRV_enUS752US752&oq=face+frame+euro&aqs=chrome.2.0j69i57j0l4.7963j1j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 There are a million varieties. Most are fairly inexpensive.

This should solve your question AND help me with one of my own :smiley:

Have you shared this project on Instagram? I’m looking at building a new console for our couch and this time we want storage.
