Project History & More Info:

I saw an awesome concept for a concealment shelf floating around Facebook last year ( and thought it was great! Until I looked at the price.

I wondered if I could build something similar myself and save some money.

It took 1 full week of prototyping, and I pulled more inspiration from a website called Tactical Walls ( and came up with my own version that looks great, works awesome, and gives peace of mind when something important needs to be hidden.

My shelf uses magnetic locks to keep it closed, and as easy as it seems to open, for anyone who doesn’t understand how it works, it’s deceptively difficult to open, even for adults.
