I made this for a friend’s birthday based on pictures his wife showed me. It’s made of red oak with golden oak stain and water based polycrylic. I got the gas openers from Amazon. It was difficult to pick the right ones, but I got lucky on the first try. The latches are magnetic operated safety latches for cabinets. You place magnetic keys in just the right places, squeeze the shelf and the latches open so the tray will drop down. To close you move the magnets, lift the tray and squeeze it shut. It was fun to make. I learned some lessons from this one that will help when I make more very soon. Thanks for looking.
