This is a drop down tool shelf for small tools I use often. I used a locking system like that used in a truck camper cap that exerts a rod outward to lock into holes in the side of the cabinet at various degrees. It can be swung up and out of way when no needed. Works great, very handy.
I added some more photos of the cabinet with the dropdown shelf. Thanks for the comments. Mitch

I must admit that I enjoy more to organize workshop than make projects itself.

Nice idea. Several of those stacked would make a lot of organized storage, but you’d have to open the ones below to get to the top one.

WElcome to LJ!!
