How to repair a broken cabinet door?
I picked up this gorgeous cabinet at my local 'thrift' store but, somewhere between purchase and delivery, one of the doors was broken off at the hinge . The existing hinges (loose pin) are beyond repair and I'm having trouble finding exact replacements. My question is: Do they have to be loose pin? If I buy fixed pin hinges, do they have to be 'recessed' into the wood (not sure if I'm explaining myself well here) or do they just sit on top of the wood as the existing hinges do? I don't think I need the 'functionality' of a loose pin hinge (i.e. I don't need to be 'lifting' the door off), but really don't want to be taking a hammer and chisel to the wood (knowing my level of - ahem - 'skill' )Can anyone advise me please?
