I really didn’t want this to get out but here it is anyway.

This is a part of the highboy that I posted before, but showing the secret drawers.

The molding on the top it really hides the space for the drawers very well as you can see in the first picture.
You have to completly remove the middle drawer to access them.

The 4 drawers sides are all Oak, just like the drawers for everything else.

Here are a few more views.

WOW…
I’m thinking of all the heirlooms we’re going to hand down, and who’ll even think to pull them apart to make sure there aren’t treasures hidden inside, especially in drawers behind drawers!

Gary, wow, that is sweet! I’m glad you showed us, but fully understand why you wouldn’t want to.

Thanks for posting it.

Gary

Well done, as usual you’ve stunned us.

A quick question, once the centre drawer is removed access is gained to the two nieghbouring drawers, which are otherwise hidden. I am sorry but I cannot see where the third drawer in the cavity comes from?

you must have really struggled with whether to post this or not…
I appreciate the privilege of getting to these hidden compartments. I think we are going to get lots of ideas as to how to include a secret space in our creations.

I could only hope to have learned your skills in my life time. Just beautiful. As mentioned above the use of that space for the drawers is pretty awesome.

What kind of plans did you work from Gary? Or did you draw it up yourself?

Thank you for sharing this.
