I'm looking to build in a small flatscreen TV into a hollow wall cavity below a counter separating our living room & Kitchen, where my wife doesn't want to see the TV unless we're watching it. When not in use, have it descend back down & the top become part of the wooden countertop. I have sent away to a company specializing in this type of thing ( http://www.auton.com/category_page_lift.asp?ID=1
This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
) but I can imagine what their electricaly operated lifts will cost! I'm looking for ideas to build some kind of a lift, maybe useing drawer slides or such that will allow me to build a manual lift for a small lcd TV. Looking for any ideas I can use.
