    hidden compartment table

    There are a lot of woodworkers on the site and for those who aren't you'll enjoy this as well. Not a hard project to complete.

        You can find those locks just about anywhere. They are marketed as child safety locks for cabinet doors.

                I would not trust this if you have kids or others you want to deny firearm access. It's nice that the table is only ~$550 but I found the design no surprise even before he opened it.

                Hidden gun storage furniture at a price you can afford. Conceal long guns, handguns or pistols, ammo, jewelry or cash. Payment options available.

                    You could very easily set up a magnetic reed switch as used for alarm switches to control a latching solenoid or even a motor drive cam and series of locking bars like a safe. Probably not necessary since the operative word here is HIDDEN. I would recommend that if anybody here builds something like this, especially if they are likely to be targeted by somebody who may know they have guns, get a $99 HF special "safe" and throw it in your master bedroom closet. You can keep your shoe shine supplies in it. Because once a thief thinks he's found all your valuables, he stops looking and leaves your house with what he thinks is your valuables. That's about the only good use I can think of for one of those HF Chinese safes.

                      I don't think you'll find one. These latches are designed in a way in which the moving part of the latch needs to be very light weight.

                      I designed one of these into my last hidden compartment. There is a fine line between the latch rattling because it's loose and everything fitting correctly but it being impossible to unlatch. I struggled with it for several days before abandoning the idea and going with something more simple. On a table like the one in the video, I'd add a knob or applique to the front skirt and mount it in a way that it would slide sideways to unlatch the top. Much more reliable than a plastic piece of chinese junk. It wouldn't stand up to a crowbar, but neither would the rest of the table.
