Cherry Chest with Remote Controlled Hidden Drawer

author-gravatar WoodGate Nov 27, 2020

This is the matching chest to the dresser I built a few months ago. Cherry with a Walnut insert. Finished in Danish oil. Mechanism uses 2 linear activators with an RF remote to reveal the hidden storage drawer. 

Here is a YouTube video of the mechanism in action.

When you posted the picture of the electronics there's absolutely no way I would have guessed this! Absolutely amazing work on the design and execution with this chest. I love the raised panel sides and the top with the walnut was also a nice touch! Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Sean! This was a fun automation project. I'll be starting 2 matching side tables soon but no automation in them.
