Raise & Lower Spice Rack Answered

I built a small spice rack that hangs on the underside of my kitchen cupboards (it is hidden behind the valence), and I want to have it raise and lower using a simple motor mechanism but I am a complete novice and I have no idea where to start.

Right now I can just raise and lower it by pulling a string, in the same you would raise and lower window blinds.

Any thoughts?

I'm out of town right now, but I'll post a few pics as soon as I can.

first you need a good motor to lift and lower it. The real trick is to make it stop and start so it doesn't attempt to drive the rack through your cupboard bottom ! Post a couple of pictures.

Wind the string around an axle, and drive the axle with an electric motor.
