Just looking for a quick opinion regarding placement for basic barrel
It's a basic two door cabinet. 3/4" Red Oak. The doors should be
24" tall and 12" wide, rails & stiles are 2" in width with glass
Is there a particular formula for locating the heights of the hinges
on a frame. If not, what would be a good height to install the
hinges. i.e. 2" , 3" or 4" from either end etc...

I don't know if there's a "formula" for that or not, and don't
care. My quick opinion: Put them where you think they look best.

Thanks Alan... That's a good idea. Every cabinet around me is
either face frame overlay, or wrap around hinge, so I wasn't sure how
to determine the placement on an inset door.
BTW: Like your site - I'll have to take another look at all those
I watched a kitchen remodel on TV & they used the hinge as a guide/spacer. The
hinge was set on the door flush to top/bottom and hinge to be used was placed
above/below this. Hard to describe - basically with a 2 inch hinge it would be
2 inches from the top & bottom. I just measured my (factory built) cabinets &
the hinges are 2 & a quarter inches & mounted 2 & a quarter inches from the top
& bottom of the door.
