Corner cabinet question for Dennis Bean6/21/17
Been awhile since I did a corner cabinet that doesn't have pie shape configuration. I'm attaching top view of cabinets.
We do these fairly often. My upper cabinet depth is 13". Doesn't really matter. Our door is the same width as the diagonial cut measurement. I don't know what hinges you use, we generally use Grass and they have changed the 45 degree corner hinge. The baseplate boring is different than the standard hinge.
Hinge plate setback is same as regular cabinet. Blum 45degree hinge door same as diagonal and thick bumper. Works every time,
Paul and Harold thanks for the quick response. Should I let doors that meet corner door shy by 1/16" or flush?
shy is good.
Reminder...........be very careful of handle placement!
good point mark! ideally handle on door that meets hinge side of corner should be on other side. otherwise it will hit handle when opening. harold.
I just now saw your post. I usually get notifications at 5:30am every morning but missed it this morning.
You guys are right on with the door sizing and it's position. It is best to use a 6mm door bumper. This will keep the door parallel with the front line of the diagonal cabinet.
Here is a drawing of the hinge side. If you are using Salice, a 3mm mounting plate is best and the set back would be the standard 37mm from the edge. The hinge could be either self close or soft close.
When I started doing Euro style cabinets, making the doors and drawer fronts 1/8" less in width than the cabinet was the standard. Putting on solid wood doors lead to the gap being too narrow if the doors expanded during humid months. I went to making the doors and drawer fronts 5mm less in width. You won't have to worry about leaving adjacent cabinet doors shy.
I also make my doors 6mm les in height, leaving an 1/8" gap at the top and bottom of the cabinet. If you are on a 32mm system and your first hole down from the top and your first hole up from the bottom are the same, your doors are reversable if the handle has not been installed.
