Turned a regular door into a book case. I thought it was a pretty neat idea when someone asked me to build them one.
It’s basically 5/8 and 3/4 mdf with some alder to support it in certain spots. Then painted.

Very cool work. How does it latch closed?

It has self closing hinges on it. They wanted it to be noninvasive as possible. However, they might do something later down the road.

I think it’s much easier to do when it doesn’t have to fit a door jamb exactly ;) what a pain

I’m about to divide a huge closet in half to create a storage room, and I think this will be a perfect application of your idea. :)

These guys have some cool hinges for this application.I tried to use them once, but they couldn’t deliver on time. They were “ramping up” production, but, didn’t have the product at that time.
It’s a bit pricey but way high on the “neat-o” scale.
