Liquor cabinet hinge problem
Hey, all. I got myself into a problem, and in researching how to fix it, I found this site. Hoping you guys can help me out:
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 wall with two shelves that will be anchored to the wall of my apartment. I cut everything, 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, 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 lower section off of the back piece and attach it 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. Or maybe my original idea would actually work, or there could even be something Iím not thinking about at all. Thoughts?
And if anyone has other suggestions for the project, Iím all ears.
Thanks so much.
