Very very nice. I really like the simplicity of line and contemporary style.

I too would like a peek at the cleat you used. Purty please!

This is sweet! I would love to build something like it. I would also love to see how it is mounted to the wall.

Looks like a great place to read WW magazines and plan the next project

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway!
