Suggestions for short cabinet design

I want something like the attached photo.


Except an open shelf directly under the top.
Then doors directly under the open shelf.


This will be quarter sawn oak to match my other furniture.


Not really sure how I attach the shelf - it will be fixed and not movable.


I guess I need to make a face for this to mount hinges? Or is there other types of hinges.

This is really a stereo/amp cabinet to go with my other items.

Far left is a 1910 phonograph I bought in pieces... salvaged the wood and snuck in a modern record player.

The table I made from rough saw wood.

Need some ideas on the general construction of the table.
How to make sides? Do I need "legs"

I think the doors will be glass inset. Maybe that old fashioned wavy type glass

Shelf can go in a dado.


There are face frame wrap hinges available for your application.

I would need a face frame them, for a partial overlay door with this hinge in the attachment.

I did a quick model of what I am thinking.

All wood thickness is 3/4 except the back where the shelves are.

I think the face frame will take away from what I am wanting to match with what I have already.
I am showing the amplifier twice. Just want an option to have ontop or on the first open shelf.

The bottom two shelves I would like doors on. But not sure about a face frame.

Suggestions on the legs also??

Go to any web site for a company that sells hinges (eg www.rockler.com) and search for cabinet hinges. You will see many that are illustrated on cabinets that do not have face frame. The hinge that you select will depend upon whether you want the door inset or overlay.

I would insert any shelves that I do not want to be moveable into a dado.

You have a choice to make .....

Open shelves to display the equipment OR a glass door as shown. I'm also getting back into old vinyl and have some of the same decisions to make. I really like the oak stain look you've got going and would keep that. Put the amplifier on the shelf below the top and keep that top surface clear of stuff until you need it.


Hard choice between the tinted glass and the open shelves

I guess I'd like the immediate access of the open shelves. I have a lot of cabinets with bevel glass doors, and magnetic catches and they don't always work. A better hinge would help in my case.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

That is called a no mortise hinge, you can not do an over lay door using that hinge it is for inset only. You can either have face frames or not, it won't matter using that hinge.

I used 3/4" full overlay hinges on my dartboard which allows 180 degree swing. They are non mortice type and I bought at woodcraft.
