This kit provides the specialized hinges and other key pieces of hardware needed to build a bookcase that swings open to reveal a hidden utility or storage area, such as a laundry room or pantry (or even a secret passageway!).
The included instructions allow you to customize the project to your space and design requirements – you supply the lumber, moldings, fasteners and shelf supports.
The bookcase mounts within a frame you build inside the existing doorway; it lies flush to the surrounding wall, with only the trim molding projecting above it. All components are surface mounted, so the doorway and wall require no cuts or remodelling.
The finished bookcase can measure 24" to 36" wide and up to 80" tall, with the hinges positioned to open in or out from either side of the doorway. The hardware supports up to 560 lb, yet operates smoothly with little effort.
Basic tools and building skills required. Made in USA.
