Yes, we have new cabinets, an interior transom window, more sheetrock in the dining room and in the mudroom, but the coolest reveal this week is our new jib door.
What is a jib door you ask?
Essentially, it is a hidden door. A door without any exposed hardware or trim. A door that blends in seemlessly with the surrounding walls...
When designing our kitchen, we incorporated a small closet with an entrance from the dining room. We knew the entrance would be oddly situated on the wall and very narrow. In short, it would look like it wasn't supposed to be there. As a solution, we decided to disguise the entrance with a jib door.
Chris just couldn't resist the challenge and opted to create the door himself instead of leaving it to the contractors.
Using hardware especially intended for this purpose, he accomplished his greatest woodworking victory yet.
magnetic catch hardware allows the door to open just by pushing on it.
