Dresser with Hidden Drawer

This is a short little pitch video I put together for one of the editors at Fine Woodworking. The beginning part of the video was filmed on the iPhone about a month ago, but the furniture spin at the end is from 2010.  The wood lock was something I saw on Matthias Wandel’s website.  I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into a piece of furniture and have it control a hidden drawer.  The video below shows what I came up with.

Showing Mike Prom this dresser is what got us talking about how we were going to take the hidden drawer concept to the next level.  That evening we started sketching the custom bookcase and its elaborate hidden drawer mechanism.
