I’m in the process of building new cabinet doors for my kitchen. This is the first time I’ve done this.

When I cut my doors, I made them a little oversized and then trimmed them down to the size I thought they should be. Turns out, I made a bit of a mistake and I now have around a 1/8 inch overlap on the two doors when they are hung. The doors came out great and so I’d like to salvage them. Fortunately, the cabinet I’m installing them on is a stand-alone so if there is a slight difference in the overlay, it shouldn’t be noticeable.

The hinges I’m using are Blum 3/4 inch overlay clip-on European style. Ideally, I’d like to find a 7/8 inch overlay hinge but I haven’t been able to find one. As an alternative, I could use a 1 inch overlay and shim it but again, I haven’t found a clip-on… only a one piece that mounts to the frame. I’d like to avoid that if I can.

Does anyone know where I can get either a 7/8 or a 1 inch overlay clip on hinge? Any help would be much appreciated. I know this was a rookie mistake.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Rockler, maybe?

Blum has a clip top 110 deg + hinge that goes up to 22 mm

or you can check out the Compact 33’s or the Compact 39C’s

Sugatsune also looks like they have one that might work, depending if you already drilled your cup holes and where.

Have your say...
