Now I know you have some scrap laying around somewhere. Make a test cut or three and see. The hole for the Euro hinge is bored on the inside of the stile...about 3mm from the outer edge. A 35mm (or 1 3/8 inch) forstner bit will do the job. Bore about 1/2 inch or so...maybe a little more. Testing may show that you need adjust where the hole is bored for the hinge to operate properly.

Good luck.

I have used these guys for cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Browse through their catalog and see if you find something you like. You might get some inspiration from the designs they offer. On shaker doors, they usually just ease the outside edge. I have ordered doors with a trim piece cut into the inside of the rails and stiles. You could do that by simply adding small pieces of trim.

Thanks ,mike, I am going to save that link to door edges for future reference.

It says that "C" and "D" are not suitable for European hinges.
