Pullout cutting board/table
Any feedback on a built-in /pullout cutting board? I am considering doing something like this but at a lower height so that you can pull a chair up to it. I got this idea from the 1940's kitchen video. I do not have an sitting island in this galley kitchen and having a cutting board pullout or something lower will also make it easier for kids to help and make it easier for older folks to sit and chop veggies etc.
Would you chop directly on this surface or use a flexible plastic cutting board? How big should this be to make it useful. What about weight considerations? Can you really use this as a table?
