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.
    If you don't want to make one you can always buy one on Amazon:
