    Hey folks, I just wrapped up this little project today.
    The owner of a local Barber shop needed a bookcase mounted in a rather unique location to display some of their product.
    The case needed to be able to swing out during business hours to showcase the products, but needed to be able to swing back inside the store at night to enable the security doors to close.
    I opted to use a centre hung pivot hinge and I’ve gotta say…. This was a challenge 😀
    There was a threshold (track) that was is the way so I had to make sure the case would “float” over top of it, and that caused some headaches at the final fitting…. I ended up scribing the bottom and trimming it to clear the track.

    Anyways, here’s some pics.

    Nice pivoting bookcase Adam. Where did you buy the Rixson pivot hinge?

    I got the top and bottom pivots through a local glazier… The supplier was High Tech Glazing.

    Looks square and plum from here. The pivot action looks smooth too! How long did it take you, start to finish?
