Topic tags/keywords: secret compartments hidden drawers question tip trick

Hello! My name is Darin. I am new to the site. I am looking for hidden compartment ideas and the mechanisms that make them work. Working with wood is a new hobby for me since me and my wife bought a beautiful 150 year old Victorian home 3 years ago. Unfortunately past owners ripped out a lot of the wood work and built ins so I have been doing my best to put it back the way we thought it might have looked like back then. With that said I thought it would be cool to add some of those secret compartments that were popular back in that time period. Secret compartments have always fascinated me. I would appreciate any advise and look forward to hearing from you! Thanks in advance!

This is not from years gone by, but you could incorporate it somewhere.

Here’s one from Norm that might suit your desires. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pUOaOrm5rQ

edit I see you were probably talking about your house, not necessarily on a piece of furniture. In that case, here’s another video I bookmarked awhile back: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp2JVCdHYCg&list=UUfYJsk_Qpd2isEW0iaDDMnw

Found this on Amazon. Not exactly what you need, maybe some ideas.
