I did these cabinets a few years back. A gentleman wanted a bar built into a double closet in his rec-room. He also wanted a gun cabinet built in the same area. There was a door way on the same wall as the bar for a walk in closet. I came up with the idea of building the gun cabinet into this door way. The gun cabinet sides were angled and it was hinged in such away that the hinges could not be seen from the outside. In order to get into the hidden room you had to open the gun cabinet and pull a hidden latch. The man kept his wifes good jewelry, extra cash, coin collection and other valuables in the hidden room. When he went on vacation he would put his guns in there for safe keeping while he was gone. What was really neat about this job was that they were robbed a year later after putting in the hidden room and the crooks did not get anything of great value! He called me up and thanked me for talking him into putting in the hidden room.
