Toy chest with shelf

Looking for plans for a toy chest that has a shelf that rises when the lid is opened and the shelf then retracts down when the lid is closed. Also looking for a place that offers the hardware to accomplish this. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

You might look for cedar chest hardware. I did a brief search and found an old chest that had a tray. It just held the front edge of the tray on the lid support and the rear of the tray was hinged on the lid.

We have an introduction section where you can say a few words about yourself. If you fill out your profile in your "User Control Panel", you can list any hobbies, experience, occupation, or if retired…from what, or other facts. You can also list your general geographical location which would be a help in answering some questions. In doing that your location will show under your username when you post.

Found this one, but it seems pricey.
