Topic tags/keywords: question plans spice cabinet

Anyone know of a good spice cabinet plan? Looking for one with the secret compartments. I may just draw one up. Would be nice to see others and possibly alter to my needs.

KsSlim – I actually found it. GoogleBooks has it. Traditional Furnituer Projects. Putting the link below as well. Also, thanks for digging around to find the link you put up.

If you have any small bit of wall space you could go for a built in model. A face frame and door to match you cabinets and you can slip it in between studs. You can even put a header at the top and bottom and span 2 stud width. Maybe not what you are looking for but just an idea.

Les, if you make a hanging cupboard that has crown molding a good place to put a secret compartment is in the space between the top of the cabinet and the top of the crown molding. A lot of the times this space is open but it can be closed up easily. there is a Tauntan book that shows a secret compartment where the back panel slides down revealing a compartment like this. If I’m not mistaken this book shows some good pictures about how to do this with a cabinet. it made a pretty slick secret compartment.
