up opening hinges?

I have built a dog food bin and would like to put the lid on hinges. Think of a toy chest in function. However my problem is that the rear of the lid butts up against a vertical back, leaving no clearance for the lid to open.

See pictures for details.

My question is, what kind of hinge would I use on the lid?

Thanks for your help.

Your situation is not uncommon.

Look around the Lee Valley site.

A hinge like this one may work.

You can use an ordinary euro concealed hinge for an overlay application. You would need 2 maybe 3. The overlay amount would depend on how thick the back is where the lid overlays. IOW, if the lid overlays the vertical back ", you would use full overlay.

I would rip just a very small piece (3/4 inch or so) off of the back of the top to attach to the back and sides. I would then use a piano hinge to connect this small piece to the rest of the top.

European cup hinges for inset cabint doors would do just what you want. You'll probably need 3-4.
