I’m looking for detailed plans to build and install a hidden “out swing” bookshelf door as an entrance way to a linen closet at the end of a hallway. I’ve come across several photos and a few Youtube videos but I can’t seem to find any detailed plans with instructions and hopefully photos. Pivot hinges are easy to source but placement instructions aren’t easy to find, at least I haven’t had much luck. The aged white oak door frame opening is 28×80. I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to an interesting secret latch.
If anyone could point me in the right direction or possibly share their own project, I would be most appreciative.
Cheers, Pat
