10 years ago, before I moved in with my partner, I had a basement studio and I was in need of some fun projects. So my partner challenged me to make an interesting cover for his new AC that stuck 5 inches out into the bedroom. Living in Oak Park, I figured it had to be kinda mission style, but even way back then I couldn’t help but design in complex ideas. Back then I had a $200 table saw, a hand plane, a belt sander, a $75 router, and two cheap chisels from Sears.

The front hides the AC, but folds and stores in to the top with as little work as possible during the summer. Ball latches keep the front tight when closed for the winter.

Great design and implementation. I like how it will fold up and store in the top thus protecting the front pieces and getting them out of the way. Nice job!
