Need a suggestion for a hinge

Hey guys,

Someone wants me to build them a white board with a frame to hang on the wall of a conference room in an office. He wants doors on it and it's 6' wide so it needs bi-fold doors. I need a 180 degree hinge that can work with the 5/8" space leftover inside the frame with the white board in a 1/8" rabbet. Does such a hinge even exist? Thanks

You might use small brass butt hinges but on the opposite side you would either have to put a magnetic catch or maybe a friction catch.

Steve, I can't see how butt hinges would open it more than 90 degrees. The edge of the door would be sitting against the frame at 90-92 degrees. The only hinges I can thing of that would accommodate this situation are Euro hinges or a 270 degree hinge which has the pivot point out at the face edge of the door. An example:

You're right. I'm having trouble seeing this evening and I missed the 180 degrees.

I think the answer is an inset door.

That happens to me often when I'm playing pool.

If you made the door and frame flush you could use double pin hinges
I made a coffee table using these hinges ( the top folded out from the center both ways to reveal a storage compartment).

The doors on my bar fold exactly how you want. However, they are inset doors with a pivot hings.

Why not just increase the frame thickness to allow space for a Euro hinge to mount on the edge of the frame like normal.

The widest angle Euro hinge I can find is 170 degrees which is not enough and I would have to turn the frame into a 2 1/2" deep box to utilize that hinge.
