Help with liquor cabinet build
Hey, all. I just found this site while searching for answers to a problem I've gotten myself into and thought you guys might be able to help:
I recently bought an old Philco 40-180 radio cabinet at a yard sale. The insides were trash, but the frame was in decent condition. I cleaned it up and decided to make it into a liquor cabinet. The radio cabinet would be a door that swung open, revealing a back with two shelves that will be anchored to the wall of my apartment. I cut everything (using a flush trim bit to make the back panel match), it all fit, then I began to put it together. And of course, once I put the hinges on the radio cabinet, I realized I hadnít thought this through. Because the cabinet and the shelf unit I built have a section that sticks out from the section where I placed the hinges (where the arrows point in one of the pictures), it doesnít look like the door will be able to open smoothly and close flush.
So, my question to you: What can I do now? One idea I had would be to cut the sections that stick out off of the back piece and glue them to the radio cabinet, giving the door room to swing open without losing the look (not sure if that makes sense at all). I also thought that if I move the hinges out an inch or so, it might give the door room to clear, but Iím not sure how to test this without actually doing it. I would imagine there might be specialty hinges that fix this problem, though I have no idea where to start looking for those. Maybe my original idea would actually work, or there could be a solution Iím not thinking about at all. Thoughts?
And if anyone has other suggestions for the project, Iím all ears.
Thanks so much.
