Rolling Shelf / Hidden Door

I didn’t document the build since this was pretty straightforward.  The interesting part of the project was the functionality.

This is part of my basement renovation.  Part of the storage area under the basement stairs is largely inaccessible and therefore unusable.  I decided I could redesign the supports and gain better access – but how would I cover the opening?  A door would be obvious, but a rolling shelf could serve two purposes – extra storage and… access to extra storage!

The shelf is made of 12″x1″ boards, a thin plywood backing and 8, 1-1/2″ casters.  The face frame is made from pallets… of course!

I gave it a simple finish of Boiled Linseed Oil.
