Intended to conceal a wall safe from prying eyes, this project challenged in a number of ways.
First, it was installed in a building in which there were no square, plumb or straight walls or floors.
Second, this is the first project of its type for me and I had no plans to work from, so I had to engineer it from scratch.
In order to make it a good concealment, the hinges couldn’t give it away that the little bookcase would open, so I used European type hinges. Six of them for good support and adjust-ability.
I used red oak plywood with solid edge bands.
Some of the chair rail and base moulding had to be removed.
Unless my next client wants to pay a premium for heating my shop, this will be the last project of any size until next spring.
