This Bookcase has a Secret…

We are currently working on a project to finish a basement. In the back we built room for a in-home office. But there was more unfinished storage space past that. So we needed some sort of door or something to block it off, but still be able to have access, when needed. So I decided to get a little creative with this one. I had seen an article some time back about a secret door. So I decided to see if we could make that happen. We did, and it Came out wonderfully. It even has a book you have to tilt backwards to release the latch. Just like the movies… Lol Below are some pictures & a video of the finished product. Along with a brief description of how it all came together.

I started by building a bookcase from cabinet grade plywood just slightly smaller than the door opening. I used the same hinges that I had read about in the article I mentioned before. ( SOSS Hinges) they worked great. But they’re latching mechanism wouldn’t work in my case, because their bookshelf opened out and I need this one to open in. It took me about a day to fabricate up something that would work for my particular situation. I ended up using the guts out of an old door knob some picture hanging wire and a couple of eye bolts. I found an old book with a good hard cover and used it for the opening mechanism.

Deck Under Skirt Projects

Here are some photos of our most recent deck projects. We added or relocated the stairs. Then installed some under skirting to create lockable storage areas under the decks. It also helps the overall visual aesthetics of the deck.


Pressure treated wood takes time to dry out, before it can be stained or painted. Get your deck addition or restoration done now, so it’s ready to be stained and enjoyed in the spring.

2020 Custom Closet Organization System

Customized wooden organization systems for any size closet. The pictures in this post are from a large master bedroom walk-in closet. It measured roughly 20ft. × 7ft., It included two long clothes hanging rods, three short clothing rods. A set of four 24″ shelves that span inbetween the four drawer towers with 25″ shaker cabinet doors. 1 – 5 wire basket shelving unit, and two open shoe racks that combined will hold fifteen pairs of shoes.

Beginning Lumber. This is what I started with.

Both towers as well as the wire basket shelving and two towers were mounted six inches above the finished floor. Then mounted to the wall. There are a few pictures from beginning to end. Starting with the pile of lumber I used to handbuild everthing after the first manufacturer did not have the color available that the customer wanted.

Finally everything had been cut, sanded, dry fit and painted two coats. Now it was time to deliver & install the new closet system on site. Here is a collage of finished project photos.
