Thanks for all the wonderfull comments.
Jake: Yes, I do plan on some kind of slide or maybe a pivot to get the ligt out of the way. The sides rise up above the Whisper 10 filter so the light will be able to slide back over the fiter.
Slotting should not be nessary, I plan on pocket screws through the under side of the shelf and there is a wood member on the back of the shelf for stiffening and support.
I plan on making some changes/additions to the design. I'll post them later.
