Boring

Boring refers to the pre drilling of cabinet doors to accept concealed hinges. At C P & W we bore the Blum 3-hole pattern for tool less installation of the Blum Inserta hinge (other hinges offered may require light tools for installation).

Our typical cabinet door boring is 3 inches from the edge of the door to the center of the large diameter hole. For cabinet doors less than 12 inches tall the boring will be moved closer to the outside edge. For large cabinet doors (over 48 inches tall, exceptionally wide, or with added weight) additional hinges are required to properly support the door.

There are three options when ordering boring for your cabinet doors – bore left (L), right (R) or pair (PR). To determine which way to bore stand facing the cabinet if the knob or pull for the door would be on the right side the hinges would be on the left and the cabinet door would be bore left (L). If the knob or pull for the door would be on the left side the hinges would be on the right and the cabinet door would be bore right (R). A pair (PR) refers to cabinet doors that are the same size and on an opening that does not have a center stile where one door will open left and one right.

Lazy Susan doors have numerous options based on the style of cabinet, cabinet door, hinges, and shelving. Please call to determine the best way to handle Lazy Susan cabinet doors.

Tip: If your cabinet doors have roll out shelves, fixed shelves, or moving items behind the doors you may need to request specific boring placement for your hinges so these items do not interfere with the door hinges.
