Hi everybody Can anybody tell me if if there are any concealed cabinet door hinges that I can use with a face frame. I Plan on just buying new base cabinets putting a timber frame on the outside and making the door to go inside the frame not like a conventional one. Is it possible to use the original ones or are there ones designed for this purpose?

Thanks in advance Phil.

If you want concealed hinges, which is the type I would recommend, then you want hinges designed for inset doors. Then you need a spacer whuich will bring the surface to which you are mounting the carcase part of the hinge level with the door opening, so obviously the thckness of the spacer will depend on how much the face frame overlaps the carcase

Phil,

I've made a few cabinets this way, and it works quite well albeit a bit fiddly. You can get standard cranked hinges (concealed) from most of the kitchen hardware suppliers. If you follow this link and then select the link to the pdf page you will be able to see the Hafele data sheet showing examples of use.
