Question How to make a small door spin on a cabinet

Hello folks, I am newbie to woodwooking I have my first project. I want to build a cabinet. I received all my fathers workshop will like to put it to good use. I figured out everthing about the buildup of the small cabinet but how to make the doors spin around. I need a help please. I looked into threaded rivets and pins to make the door spin. Any advice is appreciated. This is my first project, small project but I want to do it right.

I attached the picture, in the picture the doors spin. I have googled and googled but can't figure it out.

Thank you for any help.

Jill

You could use a roto hinge. You would have to have either the top or bottom removable in order to install or uninstall the door.
