Mix one part Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with another part Alton Brown and Good Eats and you might find yourself with something as geeky keen as this pop-up spice rack...


Using a mouth cramping "Firgelli Automation FA-400-12-18" stroke linear actuator", Instructables contributor Troy of Firgelli Automations showcases a project he did for a client's spice rack inside a kitchen island. We're imagining something like this, but for our home office and a pop up lamp, external hard drive, or our secret stash of Vosge's Chocolate bars.

As shown above, the actuator has been mounted onto a base so as to match the height of the kitchen countertop when closed, creating a flush closure. Check out this project in detail here.
