    Does anyone have recommendations for a proper hinge for this project? I do prefer a quality solid brass hinge to plated. Thanks!

    Hej,

    Brusso offers very high quality solid brass hinges. In UK they can be had from
    https://ClassicHandtools.com/Index.html.

    Apart from butt hinges, there are also Brusso stop hinges on offer, which probably is a good alternative for the lids of the laptop desk.

    The butt hinges from Niche Locks were good enough I think; perhaps not manufactured to the same finish, but then again they’re priced at 1/3 of the Brusso ones.

    Thanks for the reply. I should have clarified that I am in the United States as to avoid excess shipping. I was looking at them in the hardware store the other day and it made me think that I hadn’t really considered the correct size or type of hinge that would mate between the edge of a bin and the interior face of a lid.

    And I see Lee Valley carries Brusso hinges. Thanks very much! Should have thought of them sooner!
