I have a frameless cabinet hinge like this that I bought for a closet-like piece I am building. However, I quickly realized there was a problem; the hinge is designed so that the door lays flat in front of the frame, while in my design the door sits flush within the frame. I was on the verge of giving up and trying to find new hinges when I thought that maybe I could just flip around the hinges, install the cabinet frame piece on the door and the door piece on the cabinet frame, this way that the hinge will effectively place the door flush with the frame. I know that this is not typically done, but can anyone see a possible problem with this?
Basically I want to flip around an overlay hinge to get an inset hinge.
