Armoire ??? This project came about as a challenge to make Cabinet that works any where and has hidden storage as well as lockable. So ideas are what made this Armoire. Two years to research what i needed to make it. Cabinet is solid Curly Cherry with two tone stain, Min Wax Red Mahogany and Jacobean, with Oil Rubbed finish. Doors fold aroundand flat against cabinet sides. All drawers have hidden lock systems, where and how? Want to play an idea game, to see how many think out of the box or in the box. So look at the Armoire pictures a tell me what you see and think is hidden and where. This Armoire may amaze you or May disappoint you. In a week I’ll post a reveal of functions. A hint. Their is a power plug. and electronic components.

Hints:

Remote controlled

great work and attention to detail – this is a wonderful piece
there are so many components I imagine the unlocking and locking mechanism combinations would be endless!

Well i see lack of interest in this project. What if i said this cabinet has a remote control 6 function. Does that rise an interest?

Beautiful Armoire (not armiore which would be pronounced army-ore – LOL). If I could see it in person and play with the drawers I could probably figure out the secret compartments but that is impossible for me to do from pictures – especially since all the drawers are closed in the pictures. It is probably best to keep the secret compartments secret otherwise you will have thieves and nosy house guests stealing your valuables. I have always enjoyed multifunctional furniture with hidden compartments so thanks for posting.

It looks amazing. Very nice work. Remote control? That’s an interesting idea.

TV is hiding under the row of smaller inner drawers. Secret drawer hidden between the two top drawers comes out from the side.

With the development of flat screen TV’s, these TV Cabinet/Armiores are becoming a thing of the past.
I pick them up for free on Craigslist and tear them apart for the wood.
You got room in your house for a piece this big?
