Pull-out for coffee service -what is this called?
I'm hoping someone can steer me in the right direction based on my vague description. This is an area where my planning didn't work out too well.
We're installing a 30" wide appliance garage that we want to use as a coffee center. The doors haven't been installed yet, but we are planning to have them open, then slide back into the sides of the cabinet.
Our old coffee maker is giving out and we want to get a bigger coffee maker, (this is the part where I didn't plan too well) but that means the new coffee pot lid is too tall to open to add the water while in the coffee center. So, my thought is to use a slide-out that the pot, would sit on. It would pull out to fill the coffee pot, then push back in. Could be pulled out to pour a cup of coffee or we could just pour from within the appliance garage. Think something along the lines of a pull-out chopping board but supported differently.
I have a spare shelf that came with the cabinets that I could use as a pull-out and I also have a shallow drawer that could be used. The part I cannot figure out is how to install the glides.
The garage sits on top of the granite countertop, so I can't attach the pull-out to glides on the bottom. Can't attach on the sides since the doors will be sliding back into the cabinet. Are there glides that could be attached at the back of the cabinet only? Any creative thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
