Help Finding Cabinet Hinges

Hi All,

I just built a custom 6" wide kitchen base cabinet to fit in the gap by our stove. I built it to match our other cabinets, which have an odd door design.

They are flat on the front and back, but tapered at 45 degrees on the sides (so the back is smaller than the front face if that makes sense.

Because of this, the doors require the special hinges pictured below. The hinges are only about 1.5" tall. I have had no luck locating these hinges.

Can anyone tell me what they are called, or where to get them?

Thank you!

If you need more pictures or if this belongs in a different part of the forums please let me know.

These are going to be hard to find.

Here's a similar one.

Check out Rockler.com

You can find hinges that operate the same way yours do, but they will look different and some require a mortise.

Yours are unique because the door side of hinge is so small.

Thanks for the info.

I looked through everything on rockler, and didn't see anything that would work (even with modifications).

This one (that you posted): 270 Overlay Hinge - Rockler Woodworking Tools

is too big.

The piece that is 3/4" in this diagram http://go.rockler.com/tech/15455.pdf (between the face of the cabinet and the door) is only about 3/8" on my hinges. This would basically leave the doors "floating" another 3/8 off of the cabinet faces.

I even tried fabricating my own hinges tonight (by bending and cutting some old hinges), and it didn't turn out too well.

Any more leads would be much appreciated.

There are companies in san diego that have everything imaginable.

Thank you.

I may try again at bending my own hinges too.
