What type of hinges for a lift up cabinet door?
I have decided to make a pair of cabinets for my garage 36W X 18H x 12D and the door will be full overlay over a frameless carcass.
The door will be Baltic Birch plywood and weigh about 13.7 lbs, give or take based on online calculators.
What kind of hinges can I use for them? Can I use any hinge?
Any recommendations for hinge brands?
I also plan on using a pair of 100N/22lb 10″ gas struts to hold them up. Does this sound adequate? From my thinking, for a door held open, the sum of the forces must equal in all directions for it to be still. The weight of the door will be centered on the panel and be 9″ from the hinge. The struts seem to suggest a 3″ from the hinge mounting location. This would mean the strut must hold up 3X the weight of the door = 41 lbs so two 22lb struts should do the trick. Does this seem sound logic?
