Im trying to make a tradeshow display board, and I already have the three boards made and finished, each one measures 24" W x 36" H x .75" D.

The hinges I want to put on them are like this, where I would be able to fold the boards into each other




Can you guys please help me figure out a way to add this? Thanks!

Regular door hinges, just going in different directions?

The first hinge, going left to right, would go on the side that's facing us, the other on the reverse side. You need four hinges. Put them roughly 20-25% up from the bottom of the board, and 20-25% down the top of the board.

Yes, I was going to do that, but when you open it up, it wouldn't be able to open up like this:

Because the hinges would only allow them to extend completely straight, and itll look more like a wall.

Well then put both hinges on the same side, but I don't know it it will fold as nicely.

So, you want the hinges to turn both ways? The easiest way to do that would be to attach two hinges together as one.

This. It will do what you want. The boards won't fold together perfectly flat, but it's good enough.

Right, does this diagram make sense? The blue bits are the boards, and the yellow bits are the hinges.
