    Hi guys,
    This is my first thread, so please forgive any mistakes and whatnot.
    I thought I'd share a few pictures of my latest project, and tell me what you guys think.

    My armoury is concealed behind a bookcase. I built a partition wall with a door originally, and then came up with the idea of the bookcase.

    The idea is good, kind of hard to see the details in some of the pictures, they're a bit dark. Otherwise, nice.

    Thanks.
    The armoury has its own light, but it's just one bulb so it's still a little dark on there, and my phone doesn't have a flash.

    I did think about that, but the only ones I could find take ages to reach full brightness. I'll see if I can find some better ones though. Thanks.

    You can find LED lights that run off batteries & you can mount them practically anywhere. Very bright and fairly inexspensive.

    I like the idea I just wish the pictures were not as dark so we could see more.

    Okay, I'll work on getting more light in to it, then I'll update this thread with them. :)

    ^This, literally.

    But in all seriousness that is pretty sweet.

    Edit: How big is the closet (or room, couldn't get a good sense of scale)? You should put a tech bench and/or a computer (chairsofting FTW) in there.

    I approve of this entire concept.

    It's only about 6ft by 4ft so I couldn't put a full sized bench in there, but I've recently been considering some sort of fold-down/away bench to work on, on one of the walls or the door.

    Nah, just make like a good-sizes shelf on one side (from the wall to about the door or whatever makes sense [I am not there]) and use a folding chair or something.

    Yeah, I used to be quite a big Doctor Who fan. Airsoft took over, but I still watch it when it's on.

    I'm going to take some better pictures of the inside of the 'armoury' later, and would be grateful of any ideas that might improve it.
