Does anyone have recommendations for a proper hinge for this project? I do prefer a quality solid brass hinge to plated. Thanks!2 September 2017 at 9:19 pm #315456Sven-Olof JanssonParticipant
Brusso offers very high quality solid brass hinges. In UK they can be had from
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.3 September 2017 at 2:12 am #315463bytespliceParticipant

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