    Default Hanging cupboard doors

    Boy do I hate this Job!!

    I have never been good at hanging doors on cupboards, not that i have done many.

    My latest foray into this dark art has left me wondering why I bother!

    I have a singular problem in that i lost my left eye when aged about 5. Because of this I am |ultra right handed
    and this means that I find it impossible to hang doors on the right hand side so I took the cowards route and
    everything is hung on the left.

    I still managed to get myself into some strife with hinge alignment until it struck me that the hinge barrels were
    of two very slightly different sizes. So i have slightly skew whiff alignments. I can pull these into place with the
    yet to be purchased catches.

    I think my door hanging days are numbered and for this I am grateful!

    This is why I like cup hinges; +/- 1.5mm adjustment in all 3 directions
