Pssst. Over here. Have you read, “It’s a Secret”, the article by Chuck Bender in the November 2009 issue of Popular Woodworking magazine? Many woodworkers have, and they have asked us for more information. (You can read the article here.) So we went straight to the source to see if we could finagle a few more details about secret drawers.
Mr. Bender has agreed to give us more information. He just posted the first of a series of blog entries that will build over the coming months. He plans to post photos and information about a number of the secret drawers and compartments that he’s discovered as he’s worked on antiques. He says, “Not all the secrets will be unique. In fact, some will be rather common, but they will all be interesting.”
I’ve read the first entry (click here to take a look) and I can say the piece is too cool , I have never seen a secret drawer such as this.
