I have a large face frame cabinet that I am building and I am looking
at using Blum hinges. I am amazed at the selection available and I am
having a difficult time deciding which hinge to use. Here is my
* Maple face frame 3/4" thick
* I have two maple raised panel doors (each 26 5/8" wide, 68 5/8"
tall). The door rails and styles are 3/4" inch thick.
* Each door will overlap the opening by 1/2" (right, left, top,
* I would like the doors to open 100° or more
This is my second cabinet project (I am still a newbie). I used Blum
screw mount units before and thought they were great, but I see that a
number of people are recommending Inserta. I do not understand what
the difference is?
Also, what do you recommend for the number of hinges per door?
I buy these by the 100 packs. They screw into the edge of the door opening
of the face frame and are very easy to mount if you attach to the door
first. You can drill the holes with a 1-3/8" forstner bit.
