Default pivot hinge


I'm well into building the wine server in #176 Woodsmith magazine. At this point I have to drill the holes for the pivot hinge before going any further. I haven't ordered the Lee hinge as yet and wondered if there might be a better hinge arrangement. It seems like if somebody leaned on the door when it was open the light duty hinge might fail. I realize that the back end of the door is supported by the shelf when the door is open, but that's a heavy door. Any suggestions welcome.

I really do not think it would make much diffrence which hinge you used if someone leans heavily on the door you would have a problem
