An ideal Source for Woodworking Supplies in Columbus, Ohio

In central Ohio, we design, build and install moving bookcase doors. Secret Doorways are used in all sorts of applications, but the most common applications are in front of a closet. We sell the hardware that is used in the construction of moving bookcase doors.

What's in a Kit

  • First of all, we do not ship doors. The shipping of our bookcases is costly. In addition, what happens when it gets damaged in transit, or there is an issue with installation? The solution is to purchase a hardware kit and either build it yourself or have a local carpenter build it for you.
  • What’s included in the kits? The plans and hardware. Each kit contains every nut, bolt, washer, bearing, and bracket that you’ll need, right down to the last shelf pin. Through email, you will receive a build worksheet. This is a spreadsheet in which you input a couple of measurements, and it generates all the dimensions of pieces-parts you will need to cut. Nice! You’ll also receive PDFs with detailed step-by-step instructions complete with lots of pictures and diagrams. The instructions are written in a way that is easy for the average weekend woodworker to understand. If you get stuck or have questions, support is just an email or phone call away.
  • You provide the lumber. Choose whatever species you’d like but avoid particle-board or MDF. We recommend using cabinet-grade plywood, 3/4" for the sides and fixed shelves, 1/2" for the adjustable shelves and back, and solid wood faces.
  • Once you have ordered your kit, within 24 hours, you will receive an email with the instructions and build worksheet. This will allow you to begin planning and building your project right away! Your hardware will usually ship right away.
