Cabinet door clearance

CEFreemanSeptember 3, 2012

Hello all! Happy Labor Day.

I'm making some cabinet doors (surprise!) out of wine crate panels. I was wondering when I actually size them, how much clearance I should allow for full overlay, hidden European hinges? I'd like these doors to be as close to each other as possible. Looking for a seamless panel look.

Thanks for your ideas!

You can purchase the hinge that allows for most coverage and less overlay.

Plan your fillers on sides against the wall well. And double door cabinets.

Good luck with your project.

I like Euro cabinets, they are easier to make and adjust shelving later on. They are so square though, so harder to join (and make to appear seamless) on real walls that are not straight.
