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
