Where to buy good cabinet door hardware

Recommended Posts

We're having some cabinets made by a local carpenter and we want to select our our pulls and handles, Lakeside.

Last January, I bought some hardware for other pieces of furniture and was satisfied. I can't remember the store name but it was a ferretería and I'd be able to find it. It's in Ajijic, mountain side of the Carratera, past the downtown core.

I'm looking for other places with even more selection, if there are any, with brushed chrome or nickel hardware would be nice.

Thanks

Intercam is an investment house and currency exchange located next to the OXXO in Ajijic directly across the street from Trattoria Ajijic. The Prisa store is immediately west of Intercam.

I am looking for a source for cabinet hardware. In this case I am trying to find rustico styled hinges, handles, and lock for an old wooden chest. If you know of a store that handles this type of hardware I would appreciate hearing about it.

The Prisa/Truper store in downtown Ajijic has quite a good selection of such hardware.

Mexico Rustico may be able to help. Otherwise, if you want real antique hardware, or even reproductions, you will have to wander the streets of Tlaquepaque and Guadalajara.

I too am looking for hardware but in my case a pair of hinges. They are rather unusual having a large round bit that is sunkinto the counter and a long arm that connect to the door. Anyway, I will try this shop and see. thanks for the information.

If you have an antique piece of hardware and cannot find another, take it to a local ironworker. Some of these guys are true artists and can copy an item for you.

Sounds to me like you are describing European hinges, one of the best and most popular hinge styles NoB. There are many different styles of European hinges but the way they attach with the sunken portion is the same for most of them. They have become very popular because of their ease of installation and how they can be adjusted to square after the installation of the door, and over time if for any reason the doors go out of square.

I got some nice pulls and handles at the Prisa store today.

When I went today, I remembered that this was the store I went to before, my mistake.

MEXNOW you are right about the hinges I need and I actually found them in the Prisa store. They are not as finely made as the

original but will do the job. never knew about this source until it appeared on this site. Thanks. Saved me a trip to Guad
