Eagle Cap Kitchen Cabinet Door

In our Eagle Cap 1165, it was extremely difficult to access the storage under the sink with both cabinet doors open.  This area is very tight making it hard to change the water filter without some difficulty.

To fix this, I connected the two cabinet doors together using a piano hinge.  The piano hinge makes the two doors open simultaneously.

I kept both door handles in the exact same location for appearances, along with the center catches.  I also added strong magnetic catches on the far left cabinet side to hold the door solid, along with adding one of the hinges removed from the left side to the right center.

Now the doors open as wide as one unit and it is easy to change the water filter under the sink.  My wife and I can both access what is needed.

It took me two hours to complete this modification and cost $14.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is medium.
