I've always been a little obsessed with trying to figure ways that TC designers could give us even better use of the area that we have to work with. And since I can't sit still I started tinkering with making a galley shelf extension. I uses 3/8" pine with a little edge molding so the whole set up is very light, but strong. When I add something, I also make sure that there is a suitable area inside the TC to store the item out of the way, or I dont do it. I think it will be nice when we are set up for several days of camping. Takes about 30 seconds to deploy it or stow it away. Still gives us our main counter space. Not sure what we will use it for just yet but Im sure we can fill it with something.
Shelf bottom with removable legs
Mounting bracket attached to existing shelf. New shelf locks down on pins and barrel bolts secure it in place.
Can also be used with only one leg to open up the counter space even more.
Locked away in the stowed position for travel. The legs just go inside a cabinet. Does not interfere with the slide out operation.
Looks great! Very clever and nice work. Send it to a couple of TC manufacturers and see if they'll go for it.
But first, You should get a Law Firm and Patent it....start with these guys!
