When I first saw the shop I thought he had a much too large a table smack dab in the middle...then it was obvious that the table hides all the tools underneath. His router, miter saw, etc...

The shelving unit fits his theme of stowaway stuff...

Good job engineering all the pivot points and especially the use of a quick latch and gas shocks to hold the weight when bringing it down.

I have a boat project coming up that will use gas shocks...the forward berth will get a cut-to-size plywood sheet under the mattress to allow access to the storage underneath. To date it is a pain to pull the bed apart just to get under it. The shocks will be 90# shocks to help lift it with the mattress, sheets and pillows on it without disturbing them. My cockpit engine compartment hatches also use 90#'ers...they're big and heavy.

Good comments...his foldup shelves would be good if you just need to get something and put it back up...apparently, that's the way he works...I think I would prefer shelves, or at least, have it come down where it does not disturb a wall with shelves. Having said that, it's not on my priority list for sure...

Thanks for reading...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

In order to be able to lower the panels, you have to keep the walls bare. So why not just put shelves on the walls and save the time and money this costs to build?
What? You can put these anywhere you have overhead structure and no back wall required. I suggest putting something like this above the walkways/aisles. Frankly, with some more sophisticated mechanisms, these could be configured operated via pulleys and that would enable operation from afar. The only serious limitation is the total weight for each unit, but that can be counter-balanced by homemade counterweights (for the budget-conscious of us).

put them in front of the shelving...
BUT!!!
if your roof is trussed.. all bets are off..
mounting them to a truss's bottom chord more than likely compromise the capacity of the truss...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....
