Custom Pantry door Idea

This has been taken from Kabinart and

Now You See It….Now You Don’t -Kabinart’s “Custom Where It Counts” Program
Here is an interesting take on an old idea.  In this walk through pantry door, custom sized drawer heads and hardware were used instead of tall door panels to create a stealthy hidden entrance.
An opening to the walk-in pantry in the kitchen provided a perfect place to showcase a custom 3/4″ panel (finished on all sides) and custom door and drawer fronts.  The 3/4″ panel is attached with a piano hinge to the customized flush end of the oven cabinet, and an additional 3/4″ panel provides the stop on the other side of the doorway.  Hardware was mounted to the doors before they were attached to the panel.  A residential version of a commercial door closer will be installed on the inside to keep the closed position effortlessly, while a simple commercial aluminum handle and plate make it easy to open from the inside and also protects the Starlite painted finish from hand prints and general wear and tear.
Base Moulding is cut at an angle and terminates easily into the opposing panel.  A 1/4″ allowance for the sweep is adequate to ensure smooth action and no binding.  Above, a wall filler finished on all edges is used as a mounting point to continue the crown molding and complete the illusion of a three drawer pantry cabinet.
Functional as well, the niche created by the door offset was purposely designed to house a wine cooler with bar storage above.  Once the cam locks are installed, this area allows an occupant to keep adult beverages safely stored near the kitchen without having them out in the open.  A nice compromise for a home that frequently has younger college age children and their friends.
