I agree that the top might be easier to pivot than to slide. Also, wouldn’t it be simpler instead of rotating the planer out of the way, to just put hinges on the (left as pictured) back of the planer shelf and have the door hold it up at the front. When you want it out of the way, open the door to let the planer shelf pivot down on the hinges to rest against the back of the cabinet. Also, the planer would not be upside down that way & it might be more stable when changing position on hinges than rotating on a rod assembly. -SST
