Vintage Kitchen Banquette Plan for Lovely Look
Dry fit the bench top and filler pieces to make sure the size and placement are correct. Use wood glue and finish nails to attach non-opening bench top pieces. A piano hinge is a long, continuous run of hinge commonly sold in lengths up to 6 feet. It is the best kind of hinge to use for this type of installation because it provides consistent support for the door and will help with weight distribution when someone is sitting on the banquette. First attach the piano hinge to the side bench top, making sure that the hinge stays perfectly flush with the edge of the door.
