drop down shelf

hi, i want to have a drop down shelf in the kitchen at the alcove opening to the dining room - i want it 33-1/2" (which is the width of the shelf there now between the rooms) - i want to extend it 8-10" into the kitchen, and have it drop down on the kitchen side so that dishes can be passed back and forth more securely and i would have a work table on the kitchen side,

i have investigated the brackets, which are rather expensive so i don't want to order and not have the right thing - now - do i also need hinges to attach the new shelf to the one which is there (affixrd to the bottom of the alcove.

am i making myself clear - help! please

Check out Rockler and put in shelf brackets in the search box. They run either $22. or 31.00.

seems that you just need info to help. I think that if you want to make a proper job you must use right hinges for the design job as it may not only for looks but safety. also when mounting shelf make sure that you have a firm, strong anchor to anchor to. just remember that sometimes cheapest is not the answer and normally cost more in the long run.

hardware for drop down shelf

HardwareHut.com has the spring loaded hinges for the drop down under cabinet shelf for $33.56 per pair. I spent a couple hours and a couple glasses of wine looking for them on the internet. Good luck!
