Secret Compartment Furniture

A few years ago, Jill Herro, president of Secret Compartment Furniture, took a concealed carry course. She'd never held a gun in her hands before that. She found it very empowering. Unfortunately, a few months after that, she lost her job.

At the time, she'd been looking for furniture in which she could hide her guns and other valuables, but couldn't find anything. So she started Secret Compartment Furniture. Her goal is to make beautiful handmade furniture that not only looks good but also hides your valuables or firearms “in plain sight.” None of the secret compartments are locked, thus providing you with quick, easy access to the contents…as long as you know where to look, and how to open it

She designs everything herself and has Amish craftsmen, who live near her in Holmes County, Ohio, build it.

Jill gave us a tour of her products at the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

    +Thomas Jefferson All amish furniture is.

    +Thomas Jefferson Cabinetmakers can’t even buy the solid wood and plywood for what you’d pay at Walmart for a crap piece of particle board furniture. If you go into a so-called fine furniture store like Ethan Allen you’ll find truly insane prices but it’ll still be crap construction.

    If you want a custom piece of hand built furniture with special hidden compartments and finished to match the other pieces in your home you’re going to have to pay somebody enough to build it or build it yourself, and you’ll probably want to use decent furniture-quality materials. But at least you won’t end up with crap that will fall apart on you the first time you try to move it.

    If you look carefully at the bedside table she was demonstrating you’ll find a price tag of $479.00, which is actually less than you would expect a bedside piece at Ethan Allen to cost. I see only one piece at that costs less (on sale), and its MSRP is more. Many of their bedside pieces are over $1000.00.

you are one heck of a sweet kind saleswoman that i would definitely buy from. with exposure like this will that one amish craftsman be able to keep up with demand or does he have more to help ramp up production?

    The poor amish man died. Official cause of death was exhaustion. He was being held at gun point and forced to craft non-stop for up to 20 hours a day.

    it may sound hilarious but “grannies”-related incidents are surprisingly rare.

jarel nomeh - January 8, 2018

What a very nice lady. I’m loving those products!

manifest 73 - February 1, 2018

Not a secret any more.

    Liberty Warrior - February 11, 2018

    Lol, l guess it doesn’t matter, most intruders will assume you hide your weapons anyway.

Svadilfari YT - February 21, 2018

can i hide my grandmother in one of your shelves too?

RIPPER334 - March 13, 2018

The problem is… The price. I’m sure it’s well made, and I appreciate the amount of work put into it…

But who’s going spend 500 bucks for ONE night stand, simply because it offers concealability… While offering ZERO security?

For 30 dollars, you can glue a magnet under the drawer, and just as easily “hide” your pistol or revolver.

You’re creeping up into gun safe prices… With less function.

For that kinda money, each piece should incorporate some sort of concealed locking mechanism to keep clumsy grandkids from knocking over the fruit bowl, then knocking off grandpa with the cool toy they found.
