This is a cabinet that was completed in March 2010. It is to be used as a craft table, but the customer wanted to add a ironing board to it. I found an ironing board kit at Rockler. I mounted it to where when it opens it pops up to be level with the cabinet top. Really a nice design. The directions could have been better. I ended up having to study it and make some adjustments to make it work.

On side I put deep drawers and the other I had a door unit. I built a simple upper cabinet, that is shown just sitting on the cabinet in the pictures. I never got any pictures after the installation.

Very cool but it requires a lot of free space to the sides.

I’m pretty sure that Stiletto Knives are illegal in most urban areas, though.
