I did not build this bookshelf, whoever did is incredibly talented. Take a minute to watch the video on YouTube.

That was impressive. Thanks for sharing. Really liked the simplicity of that particular design and the
cherry wood looks great. Who would think that all of those secrets lurked within those beautiful
bookshelves.

That’s quite an arsenal of weapons hidden in those bookshelves.

I have seen this vid before. Very good ideas. It’s always nice to be ready for an intruder, or the Zombie Appocalypse

Wow! That guy is “locked and loaded”! This is way beyond my skill level but I’d love to own it.

I asked the manufacturer, Q-Line Designs, if they sell the hardware kits, but they only sell completed projects.

If I had that many guns, I wouldn’t be worried about hiding anything from intruders!

Dakremer” posted this a while back and is definitely worth another look.
I agree with CharlieM but have to say that if I had this cool hiding spot, I would probably show it off so much that it wouldn’t be a secret for long…........................
