Hidden Storage Drawer

Made a hidden drawer under our bathroom cabinet for storing small items out of sight. The addition of a magnetic lock inside the drawer provides additional security by requiring a magnetic key to open it.

This was an easy project that consisted of making a simple drawer assembly from plywood scraps and sliding drawer glides. I mounted it in the unused toe kick area under the cabinet and trimmed with rubber cove base so it is completely concealed.

    • Thanks. I was inspired by the recent hidden treasure how-to's in Ryobi Nation and am now looking for other areas throughout the house where I can take advantage of hidden storage.

  • That is amazing!!!!! It is so flush with the rest of the cabinet you can't even tell its there! And it's such a good use of that wasted space! I want to build this is in my house! Thanks for the idea!
