Post building door hinges

I sent you an email with a design for hidden hinges. Key in any hidden hinge is to snuggle the pivot pin to as close to the corner made by the body and the doorjamb as possible. Ideal situation would be to have the hinge axis exactly through that corner but that is not possible.
