Reader Project: Hidden Staircase Drawer

Check out this great project for hidden stair drawers from one of our readers

Matthew Maixner doesn’t like to carry his shoes up to his room. His dad, Mark, doesn’t like having shoes lying around. So Matthew dreamed up this solution and Mark executed it.

To build these stair drawers, two drawer boxes fit between the stair stringers, and the stair riser acts as the drawer front. When the drawer is closed, you wouldn’t know it’s there. If you adopt Matthew’s idea, be sure to use self-closing slides. If not completely closed, the drawer could cause an ugly accident.
