I recently saw an Ottoman at the store that featured a specialty hinge that allowed the top of it to lift up and forward, resulting in a sort of cantilevered effect when it was opened. I would like to incorporate this into a coffee table that I am planning as we often like to eat in front of the television. However, I have searched through my hardware catalogs and haven’t found anything similar. I was wondering if anyone knew what this sort of hinge is called so that I could search for it or if there is an established technique for creating this effect oneself (e.g. out of bearings and wood strips). I thank you for your time and look forward to hearing any thoughts on the matter.
