Make a Book with a Secret Compartment 📕

  • Published on Jul 31, 2013
  • I show how to make a book safe that can be used to hide small items. 📚 Book safes are an age-old way to stash one's treasures--the key to a safe, a private document, a flask, a gun. And you can use them while traveling to hide your iPod, backup cash, or other valuables from would-be thieves. A hollowed-out book is a clever place to hide valuables. There are many companies that have book safes on the market, but why buy something that can be easily made at home with a bit of time and patience. You get to choose the book and set the depth of the safe. It a great place to hide your valuables or impress your friends.

    Hi! i am making one of these for my friend and i glued about 15 pages or so in the front so i could keep the front page art but now there is a huge crease that makes it almost impossible for the book to stay closed on its own. Is there any way I can get rid of the crease? Or is there an easy way to remove the glue to reglue it? PLEASE HELP!

    For anyone looking to do this you can cut the time it takes in half using any cordless drill and a hand coping saw.
