My wife needed a space for her craft supplies as well as a desk for her to to work at home, but she didn't want something that stuck out like a sore thumb. So after some inspiration brousing the internet, I came up with this. Fits great in out kids play room so she can work while they play, and then it packs up nicely and locks so they can't get in it. It was a great solution to hide all her craft supplies in plain sight, but still very easy to use, and with the fold out desk it makes it a great work space aswell.

  • This is so impressive! Did you use plans for this or come up with it yourself?

    • Thank you! I was Inspired by a product my wife found online, but I drew up the plans myself.

    • Thank you! I will release them on the Ryobi tools Facebook group once I'm done refining them to make it easier for others to read.

  • Looks amazing! I have been eyeballing a product like this online. Yours looks amazing!!

    • Thabks, materials for this cost me about a third to a quarter of what I was seeing online for similar designs. Plus I'm sure this is built with better materials and will last a lot longer! Join the ryobi Facebook group, I'll be posting the plans there soon.

  • You did an amazing job, hubs and I have been talking about making this for me, we've been looking at it online and it's so very expensive. How much do you think you spent on material? I'm sure it was a fraction of the cost. Great job!

    • Thank you! I spent a little less than $500 all said and done

  • great job, my wife has been looking for something like this - I see the list of materials - but no drawings of the plans. Did I miss that link?

    • You can't post plans on here, just pictures. 
      By Wreckn89, on September 4, 2018

  • I need to make one of those, do you have any plans?
