What kind of cabinet door hinge to use with door lip bit?

Greetings, everyone!

I am making a few cabinet doors and plan to use Freud 99-001 door lip bit for the edges. (Follow below link for details on Freud 99-001 door lip bit.) And since part of the door thickness will be embedded under the face frame, the standard cabinet door hinges don't seem to work. I'd like to find out what kind of door hinges to use with this door lip bit. Any ideas? And where to get them?

Thank you in advance.

Google "cabinet hardware" for lots of suppliers. Good luck.

Will this affect the door dimension calculation?

Thank you for the prompt reply and helpful information.

One more question: since this is my first time using the door lip bit, I want to make sure I got the correct dimension for the door. Given the following:

1. my face frame opening's width (ffow) and height (ffoh)
2. the door lip is 3/8" wide
3. I need to leave a 1/8" gap between the embedded part of the door and the face frame;

So, my cabinet door's dimension would be:

door width = ffow + 3/8 + 3/8 - 1/8 - 1/8 = ffow + 1/2"
door height = ffoh + 3/8 + 3/8 - 1/8 - 1/8 = ffoh + 1/2"

in other words, the door dimension is 1/2" larger than the face frame opening in both width and height.

Is the above calculation correct? And if I use the partial wrap around hinge, will that affect the calculation?

Your calculations look correct. I would get my hinges first and experiment on a sample before making the doors.
