The Secret Table
The Secret Table encloses a lift-up platform that rises or lowers when the two top leaves are opened or closed.
With glass sides and top, the contents are actually no secret, but but they could be without glass.
This example with glass all around shows the contents inside on a suspended platform.
Lifting both top leaves raises the internal platform to produce your bar ware, ‘50’s lunchbox collection, or fossil mammoth molar.
If secrecy is desired, the sides of your table can be made opaque to hide the contents from prying eyes until the table is opened and the platform raised.
This example is clean and lean, formed from alder with a light red chestnut stain.
Your custom-made Secret (or Not) Table can be any style you chose, from Arts & Crafts to Streamlined Moderne to Gothic.
