    Secret Bookcase Entrance Puts A Batcave-Style Hidden Switch Under Shakespeare’s Head

    Old movies and comic books always had mansions with secret lairs, where the pathways were opened by similarly secret controls hidden either in the bookshelves or on one of the statues.  This Secret Bookcase Entrance, inspired by a similar unit installed in Wayne Manor, does exactly that, opening the door to a room that’s hidden from sight.  Instead of leading to a fireman’s pole which slides down to the Batcave, however, the discreet doorway opens up to the exclusive Senior [...]

If you’re not familiar with ultrasonic cleaning, it’s the process of washing an item using ultrasound.  That means no detergents, no water [...]
