Flip Up

Flip Up, originally uploaded by Jrome.

N first mentioned this idea for a flip up counter back in September or October. Once the range arrived and the landing pads were built, the only thing preventing this flip top from happening was the opposite wall's counter base. I took care of that on Saturday.

The flip top took about twenty minutes to install, from cutting the wood (3/4 birch plywood) to screwing in the piano hinge and sash lock. The sash lock might be replaced with a dead bolt, but it holds just fine (and it's steel, so I know it's strong). N has suggested a flip out leg support, which we might have to do once the concrete is in. Once the counters are down, we'll probably have a butcherblock made for the flip up.
