Hi,

Planning to make a modern cocktail with a lift up screen/top that will stay at an angle. Had been thinking of just a piano hinge with a stay to prop it up.

However realise of like to be able to slide the bottom of the screen backwards when propped up e.g like it's on a runner. The end result would be a screen that can be propped from horizontal to about 60 degrees and then slid back away from the viewer so it sits further away...

I'm sure there is a sliding hinge or similar that might do this, or even a runner system that could be used with a gas strut but not sure of best approach?

Suggestions welcome...

They say a picture speaks 1000 words... Found this mock up on a old thread here where someone made an animated version of what I 2as trying to describe in terms of 'sliding back' here:
