Gotta picture of the extruded material you're looking for? Nice woodwork, BTW.

here's a pic of 90 degree 60 looks the same only its 60. The angle I have is in use and hard to see where it is.

Have you thought about using an aluminum piano hinge? Couple that with this: http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/category-s/427.htm and you would seem to be good to go.

Yes I have, if I can't find any I'll have some steal bent at a custom fab shop.

I ran into the exact same situation. What I did was to rip an angled filler piece (crosshatched) and screw+glue it to the upper back of the (solid brown) cabinet front - where it would be concealed. This let me use just plain 90 degree 1-1/2" by 1-1/2" aluminum angle (in black), screwed to the wood angle and riveted to the inner skin.

This is an extremely lame picture, but the trailer is six miles away, so it's what you get.

Thanks,
that was plan c; however, it looks like it work well for you. I was thinking of using a hard wood like oak. The angle on mine will be different I copied the front cabinets exactly so they have a 30 degree incline making the ripped piece at an odd angle.

The angle for the ripped piece was just measured and duplicated. The wood on mine is knotty alder; it's not real hard, but it's reasonably light.

Why couldn't you just flaten out some angle aluminum? Or bend some sheet stock?
I do like drboid's method too.

I don't have access to a b ending brake, and it seemed like my usual method of "beat it with a hammer until it looks about right" would be a little too "casual" for this application. Plus, it met the cost criteria.

Piano Hinge is a very versatile product for just about any use.

Look after your equipment, it will look after you.

Overhead cabinets come loose from the top

How are you all fastening the top?

I just had these overhead cabinets come loose from the top while driving 95 north. The plastic on the far right panel broke off and the screw mounted to the ceiling (you can see it in this pic).
