Hobbies like craft or electronics often result in lots of clutter. You can keep those items on hand but out of site with a simple furniture hack: join two shelves together with a hinge to make a closable storage pod.
At IKEA Hacker, Liz details how she built a craft pod by joining together two bookcases, adding some piano hinges and adding some wheels. You could adopt this idea with virtually any bookcase -- Liz's version has a sit-down space, but you could do a standing version with smaller shelves. For another novel use of bookshelves, check out the bookshelf cat run.
