We have covered a lot of nightstands with different types of secret compartments. This nightstand built by the AbonenDaw user on YouTube has a different twist though.
That twist is the drawer handle on the top drawer. If you turn it one direction, you pull out the primary drawer like normal. You’ll notice that drawer doesn’t look to be full depth, but there’s no obvious way to access that space below the false bottom. To do so takes another twist of the drawer pull.
Once it’s turned the other direction, a second drawer emerges with hidden space for valuables, personal items or self defense items. The video below goes into detail on how to make your own drawer within a drawer cabinet.
