Stealth Door With Heavy-Duty Hidden Hinges

Have you ever picked up a piece of nice hardware and smiled? If so, then you're an official hardware geek like me! It seems like Germany and Japan have some really nice hardware manufacturers and Sugatsune is one of my favorites. Check out their Model # HES3D-190 hinge.

This beefy hinge screams high quality. It can be found online for about $150 per hinge which isn't cheap but is so worth the money when you're doing a hidden door installation. In this video you'll see some fantastic work from my finish carpenters utilizing this hardware for an amazing "James Bond" hidden door installation. -Matt Risinger
