Building a game coffee table with top split in middle and halves are opened to game surface. The option I desire is to use them as leaves, with an option to have the doors rotate completely down, perpendicular with top.

First question is about options on 270 hinge. I want to recess any hinge on backside of top, so when opened as a leaf, the hinge is level with the surface. If I use a mortised hing, and mortise only that portion, will that present a problem? If my stock is thicker than 3/4", is that to my benefit for mortising that part of the hinge?

Is there another solution you might propose?
