Very nice work, clean and sharp, I will have to check out this ‘pocket hole’ thing, seen it mentioned a few times now but have never seen one.

It doesn’t replace every type of joint, but it comes in hand in tight spaces. Just google Kreg for a demo video.

This one still needs fine tuning of drawers and rails but the pocket hole joinery makes it easy.

Nice! Very interesting concept.

Their are a lot of concieled furniture out there, even a few companies offering custom pieces. These are sort of a shaker mission style night stand, but different dimensions than normal. I still have to make a dresser in the same style, a coffee table and 2 end tables in the mission style. Overall the client talked me into doing these as a challenge more than the money drew me in. He has a number of weapons that he wants to conceal, and the hardest part is when trigger locks are on they are almost 3" wide, a real large space to hide and make them look normal. I have incorporated moving wooden parts that lock the areas, then to unlock them, some combination must be performed. The end colour of the finish will match his light cherry coloured furniture pieces with a satin varathanes on top. The new “Roubo” and Kreg system are both getting a workout, with the new table saw offering the most precise cuts I have ever made in my home shop. So far I am enjoying the project as the client understands my mobility will only allow a slow building process.

Nice. Simple and clean.. gotta love those pocket hole jigs.

Here’s the first 2 of 6 pieces I was commissioned to build. They have concieled compartments that open using a mechanical combination. By opening the drawers at varied lengths the concieled area is able to be opened. The tolerance is a one inch area that each drawer must be opened to, both at different distances. I won’t show the mechanism or the area so the security of the pieces will be maintained. The sliders are the type that slow close on their own the last 2 inches. The night stands are sort of a shaker style, the bottom drawers are big, 10″×12″×14″. Overall the stands are 28" high, 16" deep, and 22" wide. This is the first time I used the Kreg pocket holes to build some of the project. It made adjusting the rails and drawer gaps very easy to adjust.
