I marked the area of the hinge on the floor with a pencil so I would know where to remove a small bit of wood for the hinge to recess into.

I then laid the hinge across the bottom of the router, so I could set the depth of cut properly.

Then I proceeded to remove a small amount of wood.

Replacing the hinges and the cover and hinges look like this. I have not yet routed the cover for the hinges. I've been thinking about covering it with a thin piece of plywood.

Here's the close up of the recessed hinge.

This is the space between the open step cover and the end of the kitchen cabinet.

This would not interfere with the step cover, whether it was up or down.

Last night I was sitting in the motorhome on my mechanics roll around seat, and made a discovery.

I was sitting between the counters, and I pulled out one of the drawers. I thought, hmmmm, maybe I could lay a piece of plywood on top of the drawer, and, low and behold, I just created a nice little table.

No one could walk past me while I was sitting there, but, it created some extra space for putting something there.

When I got up, then it was easy to walk between the counters to get to the bath area.

So I pulled out 3 drawers, and covered them with wood, and stood back and looked at the "new" creation.

Obviously, this would be very temporary, but provide a surface either about 12 inches wide, and 6 feet long, or 18 inches wide.

Either way, with no one standing there, access to the bath area is easy.

That leads me to tonight's $65,000.00 question.

What could this configuration be used for?

What to do with this discovery?

Get 3 (2"X2") and 3 (12"X18"X1") plank and then round one end of the 2x2 as a 1/2 sphere cutting them to 20" long and attaching the plank to form a tee, using the three drawers and the boards as a table sit the 3 guests on the "T".

The two legs of the guests and the T form a tripod and you have 3 more guests to dinner!

As usual, off topic and no one really cares. Maybe your wife could use it as an ironing board. I suppose the coroner could use it if necessary. Can't be get back to the important stuff like building a saw horse or watching paint dry?
