I was just looking at something similar on the Rockler site- a cedar chest hinge. I don’t think it will lift enough to clear the overhang/edge of the top though. From what I was reading the top needs to be flush with the back for this type of hinge. I’ll keep looking. Thanks again!

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.

You ll need to shop around to be sure you get the right dimensions, etc, but this is what I m trying to describe. Since it lifts the lid as it rotates, it should clear the obstacles behind it. It ll all come down to how much it lifts and whether it clears your frame.
