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!

That’s what I meant about shopping for the right dimensions. The one pictured says a max 3/8” overhang on the lid. Probably not enough for you, but I’d wager there are hinges that can do the 5/8 or 3/4” you need.

Anyway, best of luck. I’m sure you’ll figure it out.
