I outsmarted myself. I am making a fold-down desk out of sapele. I decided to use piano hinges and these stopmatic supports from Rockler for supporting the desk when folded out (she is planning on using her laptop here a lot).
I have the entire thing built, when I pull out the stopmatic supports and realize they are much taller than I realized, and interfere with a little cubby shelf. I can’t believe I didn’t check first.
I am using the piano hinges for alignment and smooth folding, but they cannot support it on their own.
