So the board is on the bottom, with the living hinge on the top, and you flip it play? That is very cool, and a neat way to attack the problem of drawers! You could take a candle and run it over the hinge edge or track to wax up the action and make it a bit smoother if it needs it.

Very pretty - I’ll bet that once the bottom get a little scuffed it’ll look even cooler!
