a. FullMortise. The full
mortise binge (Figure 152) is
cut or mortised (gained) into
both the doorjamb and the door.
The leaves of a fullmortise
hinge are completely hidden,
leaving only the barrel exposed
when the door is closed.
b. FullSurface. The full
surface hinge (Figure 153) is
fastened directly to the door and jamb, and no mortise is required.
Note that the edges of the fullmortise are beveled. The surface of
the frame and door must be flush when fullsurface hinges are used.
c. HalfSurface. As shown in Figure 154, the halfsurface butt
type hinge is like the other hinges, except that one leaf is fastened
on the surface of the door and the other leaf fits into a grain in
d. Cabinet Hinges. Hinges come in many styles and finishes for
every type of cabinet. Either fullmortise, fullsurface, or half
surface hinges are used for cabinet work. A few of the designs of
cabinet hinges are shown in Figure 155.
