Bookshelf Doors Make for Easy Secret Passages

The life of a gadget journalist involves storing away dozens of cardboard boxes filled with gizmos, away from civilian eyes. Hopefully in a secret gadget lair sealed off by these bookshelf-slash-doors. The doors can support loads of up to 500 pounds, come with oak, cherry and mapple veneers, and open and close via a steel hinge that swings out the center. Combine this with a electric opener triggered by a hidden button, add a booby trap, and you're talking about the Gizmodo Secret Lair I always dreamed of.

I guess those shelves can hold gadgets, too.
