Google "hidden door bookcase" for more stuff.

Here's a couple things I've done in the last couple months...

Checker Cabinet - This is based on Nixon's New Improved version, as described in The Sphinx, August 1929. I decided to give it a Russian theme. I made three, all were sold.

The Crystal Prison of Serica - My version of the classic effect, Silkola. I have made and sold some and am continuing to make more.

Skeleton Table - I have made and sold a few sets, and am working on more. They come as a single or as a pair with one head on left, one head on right. Fold flat for travel.

Wow Michael they are all just stunning. I remember seeing some of your checker cabinets before but don't think they had that much detail. Just fantastic, thanks for showing them.

Those are stunning, Michael. Ever since I saw the checker cabinet in an old Thayer catalog when I was a kid, I've wanted to build one, just never got around to it. I love the Russian theme.

This is a custom project. Same trick as I've made previously, but this is a very large version with a 5" block instead of the usual 3". Several additional features, cosmetically and functionally. There is a top lid that allows a view through the empty cabinet from a different angle. The four-point pagoda roof on the tall cabinet is also different than I typically do on the smaller versions.

Wow. Are those transfers on the wood or decals?

I make my own waterslide decals, but they are high quality. I've seen some people use decals that look like stickers. These are not that. I have not yet played with dry rub transfer images, but my decal paper source is now expanding their line of transfer papers. It's pretty expensive, and might work best if I had an ALPS printer (opaque inks). I'm always experimenting with new ideas, so who knows?? Smile

This is my spin on the Okito Zombie Cabinet, I am calling "The Temple of the Golden Dragon". The ball visibly appears inside the box, floats out and upon returning the door is closed and reopened to reveal the dragon's face. I changed several features, including the general appearance, and how some of the mechanics operate.

For those familiar with the original Okito version, it had a skull instead of the dragon face, and although I'd like to eventually use the skull idea, I'd rather use that for a gothic/graveyard-themed cabinet. For an oriental theme such as this, I thought the dragon made more sense.

This is the first of 3 units. I'll have one or two of these available.

Michael,
I use several floating balls (spheres) Would you be able to custom make one for me? Sincerely, Jake Sr.
