Tool Cabinet Hinges

Purchasing Hinges is something I put off until the last minute. I want to purchase them locally so I can feel their heft and think about how they will fit into my project. Typically I end up on line after being very dissatisfied with what available. The tool Cabinet deserved some quality Brusso Hinges. They are more expensive than the local stores but I appreciate the quality. I’ve chosen stainless steel Hinges for the cabinet, the contrast to the cherry catches my eye.


Installing hinges is one of the tasks that gives you instant feedback if you do it poorly. Carefully chiseling, than routing out the waste I make mortises for each hinge.


Focusing on one door I carefully install the hinges and make adjustments to center the door. Once both doors are in I carefully plane the center rail until the doors close without binding. The door on the right is carefully chamfered so the two will pass each other. Anyone else have some good hinge sources?

    Do you mean Brusso hinges? Clean them with Brasso perhaps 😉

      That’s strange I distinctly remember changing that and all the capital H’s on hinges.

    That is a very handsome cabinet Richard. What type of wood did you use for the cabinet doors?

    I have seen on your instagram feed, it is installed.
    It looks very good.
    Best whishes,
    Sorry if your new support system is what Hillbilly guessed.

      Not quite complete but I had to get the Cabinet out of the way prior to the new support system. Hopefully I’ll be able to do limited woodworking in a few weeks.
