Hidden drawer in top of cabinet slides forward when two springloaded square plugs are depressed at the same time. The drawer lockes back in place by simply pushing it back in. No one yet has found it with out being shown how it works. It is a shop display so I love to show everyone

Really cool!! In my old house I removed the kick plate from a 3 foot kitchen cabinet and made a built in/hidden drawer. Kept 3 collectable long guns and 4 collectable hand guns in it along with a few other valuables/goodies. Like yours better though.

Nice plane display cabinet, cool hidden drawer.

I viewed your shop photos page, looks like a slice of heaven. The tool collection is fantastic, and it’s great the way you display and use these in your shop. I assume you made most or all the cabinets in the shop, beautiful work.

Great craftsmanship, fantastic shop, what more could a man ask for!

That’s really neat! A friend showed me a company that makes something similar. Check out their safeguard shelving system video first: , then check out their other ones.

In the third pic, that jack plane above the door frame makes me nervous.
