Hinge for obstructed flush (non-overlay) doors




Here's an example of a "wide" style cabinet hinge, but with holes too close to the hinge pin, works for thicker material, but not my 7/8" door and 1" frame:

Michael, I have an old RCA Victrola cabinet that I converted to a media cabinet, probably similar to you. The factory hinges attach just like any other hinge, but the rotating point is proud of the outside wood, similar to these: Full Back to Back Wrap Around Hinges - Rockler Woodworking Tools
You may want to view all the hinges here to get some good ideas.

Finally ended up "hinging" the TV, not the doors...







Using one of these...



Digicom Universal Dual Arm Articulating Mount

As a bonus I could use a bigger TV as it's garaged diagonally when not it use.

BTW, another option suggested elesewhere would have been to cut a 1" strip off the hinge side of each door and then double hinge them.

It was made 1885-1895, and then some of the detailing added later - all hand cut mortises and tenons and square nails - that's why I didn't want to start cutting up the doors... it now lives in an 1884 house with an updated interior, the rug in front of the wardrobe is to the lower left:
