I would like to make a small shelf that folds either up or down to set my small tv on or say a stack of clean dishes. I would like to build this on the left side of the sink and have it flip up somehow..I can envision what I want but I need to "see" some ideas so i can wrap my brain on this one. Any photos would be appreciated.. Thank you Brandy

I forgot to mention that the support can be folded back flat against the cabinet so the the shelf can folded down out of the way. It only sticks out a couple of inches then. It really comes in handy!

I am going to build a drop leaf shelf on the right side of my stove as there is more room depth x width there and the shelf can be bigger for cooking space. If you only want it for a TV and not extra counter space, you may want to consider an under counter swivel bracket mount above the sink (under top cupboards) Then it can be rotated to wherever you are sitting. How big is the tv. If it is small it would work. If and when i put a tv in, it will be a small flatscreen mounted on the top third of the tall storage cabinet door. Good luck. If i get to it i`ll send a picture. PS-didnt i meet you in langley-you had the outdoor beer opener and the fish propane tank cover. I wonder if that was you.

That's where i want mine. Off topic, did you remove and replace your 2 burner stove with a 3 burner portable- or does it just sit on top? 2 burners are not enough.
