A continuous/piano hinge, 12 inches, that is not stainless steel or bright brass
Ideally, all of these things should be able to be purchased online.
For the first item, I just need advice on what type of wood, and where to get it. Home depot seems to only have particle board in the thickness (I think) I need. I'm making a portfolio book much like this
and just don't know enough about wood to make a smart purchase. I can stain it myself, so natural is fine. I also have access to power tools, so I don't need it to dimension. Would something like this work
? In a singly ply, which is 3 mm. Would it be too bendy?
For the second, I'm just having trouble all over the place. Here's some pictures
of the kind of material I'm after. I've seen this stuff all over the place. I've bough products packaged in it. But I can't, for my life, find where to buy it. Some people call it chipboard, carton board, paperboard, it has a million names and I can't figure out what exactly will give me what I need. But, here's the kicker
:I need a large sheet (at least 25" on one side), and I don't need that many sheets. I'd settle for a roll. I've been able to find small (8.5x11) sheets, and large sheets that come in 50 lb orders that you have to contact a sales rep at some warehouse to get. I do not want that.
Third is least important. Ive been able to fin 12" hinges, but they're ugly
. I just need your help finding pretty ones
in my size.
