I’m trying to make something like a cupboard that has a fold down table. I’m using birch wood for the project and the slab will have around 1″×18″×48″ and I was thinking about using hinges and 2×150 N gas pistons for lowering the desk slab. Is there a better solution? Most projects using gas pistons have a fold up part that is not as heavy.
