    I've seen people make homemade "dueling tree" targets using door hinges and pieces of scrap metal (similar to the photo below).

    Yes they can, you can use them to attach table tops, fitted in opposing pairs.

    I use a few for decorations. I also have a nice stainless steel hinge I use as a paperweight and another one I use as a door stop.

    I used a couple for a trap door in a closet floor to access a crawl space used for storage.   You could use them to connect a lid to s storage box in the carage or back of a pickup. Hinges connect something that should move (a door or gate) to something that does not move, like a wall.

      So, you're saying another use for door hinges is on different types of doors.  Thanks for the tip.

    sure. some passthroughs [like in a bar counter] are hinged. door hinges might work fine there.

    They're great fun at parties. You can run around flapping them in everyone's faces, shouting "Hey! Look at me! I've got a door hinge and you don't! HINGES!!!".

    Of course.  Typical household interior door hinges are pretty sturdy if you want to include the capacity for movement in a project.  Their big downside is that their hinge pins are large and prominent, so if the appearance of such is something you want to avoid then you may do better to look elsewhere.

    If you need something even stronger but still without the agricultural appearance of galvanized barn hinges, look at exterior door hinges, and commercial door hinges.  These can have very nice finishes and a clean, uncluttered appearance, and less slop in their action than the bigger gate and barn hinges.
