Advice for Box/Cabinet
I'm hoping to get some advice. Short version: I have to figure out how to attach a 1/2-inch USB "door" to a 1/2-inch USB cabinet/box. Due to the wood thickness and type, I'm stuck on the type of hinge and latch to use, mostly because the wood screws have to be so short.
I attached a rough visual aid. The rectangle is the front of the box, with a rectangular hole cut out. The 1/2-inch USB door is cut larger than the hole. Similar to a kitchen cabinet, but with really crummy wood.
I framed out a 2'x3'x4' box with the intention of adding a ton of household wiring as a demo. My neighbor saw it, asked me to use her scrap USB to wrap it, and turn it into something amazing. I accepted the challenge. The door needs accept any sort of small lock, and has to be relatively air tight due to future mothball odor.
I know 1/2-inch OSB isn't ideal. This is a customer we're talking about here, and I'm doing what I'm getting paid to do. I will have to say that it's looking amazing so far. Spar urethane really made the wood strands pop. (Couldn't shrink my photo to the appropriate file size. I'll try again once this is finished.)
Thanks for reading.
