Kinetic Scissor Door by Dekay's Craft is a Multi-Hinge Cabinet Door That Splits and 'Fold' Opens

Youtuber and woodworker Dekay’s Crafts built the “Kinetic scissor door” that uses a series of folding pieces to open in a unique way. Common wooden doors usually open with a single hinge or a sliding rail, but this door takes it up a notch. Dekay’s scissor door splits up into 6 different pieces as it opens and comes back into a flat panel when closed.

This unique door uses 6 hinges that allow the complex movement of the 6 pieces to reassemble when opening and closing the door. Diagonal cuts at 45 degrees across can be seen with an aspect ratio of the door being 2:1.

Anyone familiar with Klemens Torggler’s Evolution door from 2013 may recognize this format. Instead of a simple door that swings or slides, Both Torggler’s and Dekay’s doors split and fold. There is really no benefit in constructing such but it is visually appealing and much more interactive.
