Not much to say about this one. I was able to use left over boards from previous projects. There’s a little over 3 inches between the false back and the real one. I think this would also be good to hide guns. I like how the top light doesn’t swing with the shelf door so that the hidden contents are illuminated.

Very slick. Nice design, I like the way it hides the iron & broom.

This is a good idea for putting away housekeeping tools out of site. I was going to ask for plans, but on second thought, I might be able to figure it out based on the pictures you sent. Thanks for showing.

Very nice. Good solution to a common annoyance – ironing boards!

Clever and unique idea! Great use of the corner space and additional storage, like the light effects as well.

A few people have asked me for plans. I’m attempting to post a link to them. These are the plans I started with but I did a lot of modifying so the final project doesn’t match the plans.

Everyone who saw this cabinet, before I hung it 6 inches on the wall, commented it was too short. It was going to be free standing but hanging it solved two problems. It raised the height and it prevented the entire unit from falling over when the large door was open.

cool
