I'm in the process of building an entertainment center and was going to use
blum euro hinges on some inset bi-fold doors. Due to the nature of the euro
hinges, in order to make the doors fold "flat", I would have to make one of
the doors narrower than the other to work around the euro hinge cup. This
would make of an asymmetrical door layout that's not acceptable. I wanted to
hide the hinges if possible.
Now, I'm looking at knife hinges, but I have a few questions.
How hard is it to install knife hinges "right"? I've never done them before
How much load can they handle? I'm looking to use them on 3/4" thick frame
and panel doors that measure 58" tall by 15" wide each. With both doors,
it's 58"x30" wide.
Any other thoughts? Or would it make more sense to stick with the euro
hinges and live with the doors not being able to fold flat and adjust the
interior cabinet width to accomodate the offset taken by the euro hinge?
