Acute Angle Hingeing
: THE HINGED JOINT
is a sectional plan of a corner cupboard showing a good method of hingeing the door. The inset a
shows an enlarged view of the corner carrying the hinge, also the adaptor piece c
, which is fitted to the inside edge of the cupboard so that the hinged edges are at 90 degrees to the face. This is a far better and stronger method than that shown at b
, which is often attempted with disastrous results. The incorrect method b
allows insufficient wood for fixin
purposes, and in nearly all cases the thin edge of the door breaks away during the making and fitting, or soon after completion. The adaptor piece may have a face mould worked upon it to give a pilaster-like appearance if fancy so dictates.
