It’s a hidden storage that I can configure for rifles, pistols, jewelry or whatever the customer wants. It fits between 2 studs in a wall. The mirror is a standard 4’ X 1’ mirror. I am going to replace the slides with full extension slides. Beetle kill pine.

thanks for reading

That one deserves a double dose of awesomeness..
Do you have a way to latch or lock the mirror so it doesn’t open too easily to be discovered?

I haven’t figured out a lock for them. I would love suggestions.

That is a super idea. If I think of any good lock ideas I’ll let you know.

I think you have a winner idea there.
I agree some kind of pin lock that works with a magnet would be cool, and not visible ...

Nice job….this ought a sell quick as an add- on or for new construction. An idea for a “lock” .....put decorative squares/pegs/etc on each corner but have only one of them go completely through the corner of the mirror door into the stud. Just an idea.

Great looking piece Monte. Perhaps you could make some sort of slide so that the mirror would slide off to one side to expose the inside. Maybe like some sort of French Cleat system – top and bottom? It would be even securer (if that’s a word) if you could mount French Cleats to either side, having to lift if up to remove the mirror – but being 4’ long that might not work – you might hit the ceiling on an 8’ ceiling.

very cool idea Monte,
used in new construction maybe a remote rod or cable hooked up to a coat rack or moulding ( like on Scooby doo )

What a cool design! You didn’t tell me about this one. Magnets are my only thought but they don’t hold sliding parts as well as lifting parts (if that makes any sense).

Monte,

You know your customers! I’d want a secure box for safety and theft. I’m thinking a second locked door behind a removable mirror?
