Video: A desk is a great place to work, but it's also a great place to hide stuff. Over on YouTube, DIY Creators put together a desk that mounts to a wall, has a handy pull-out drawer and also has a secret compartment underneath it.
The desk itself is a solid wall mounted desk that also includes some handy LEDs on the back. Underneath sits a compartment that you can pull down to hide your stuff. Of course, it doesn't necessarily need to be a secret -- you could also just line that shelf with all the tools you don't need very often -- but keeping it secret is much more fun. You'll need a varied assortment of tools for this one, but the materials are pretty cheap. Head over to YouTube for the full parts list and plans.
