Installing Euro hinges on narrow stile
I have built my first raised panel cabinet doors and am ready to install the hinges. I want to use Euro stile hinges, but after drilling out the 35mm pocket, rather than the 3-6mm left that the manufacturer recommends - I have a whopping 1/16th of an inch.
I found a hidden hinge that would work, but it's nowhere near as smooth as the Euro hinge I'd originally purchased.
My stiles are 1 1/2" wide. Can I drill the pockets to leave the 3-6MM on the hinge side, meaning the panel side is open? Or am I going to have to source some Euro stile hinges that need less than a 35MM pocket?
