Thanks for the ideas Rich. I’m thinking I’m screwed on the lift part too. I actually had the hardware but didn’t allow for the thickness of the side or the overhang when determining how wide it should be. Looks like I might need to do some careful cutting and gluing.

I was really hoping to be able to use the piano hinge. It wasn’t cheap at Rockler. I’m not familiar with an articulating chest hinge. Do you happen to have any links? Thanks in advance.

It looks like you re screwed on the part that lifts. I assume you built the table before you bought the hardware. Lesson learned.

For the other part, I d skip the piano hinge and go with an articulating chest hinge that will lift up as it opens and clear the sides.
