How to build a secret compartment


It's so cool. I never thought of that idea. Thanks for sharing it. But sad to say that it is not secret anymore. LOL

How to build a secret compartment


That is great!!! Only comment would be to make sure to install on an interior wall so as not to draw in any cold air from exterior walls... Cheers!!

3rd pic next, build the box. i ripped 2x4 to get the material, shaving down the edges to make it straight, and make room for the 1/4' plywood back. i also used nuts and bolts to hold it, 2" screws and glue to assemble. glued and screwnailed the back to it. added scrap walnut ledge and old drawer handle. top steel piece is old window lock i flattened and broke a piece off of.
any scrap steel will do.
4th pic same thing, different view. note 'stop blocks' in frame
5th pic 3 small coffee jars full of nails suspended. if you want to hold more weight, i suggest 2 hdd magnets, one on each end.
the last two in just a second or two. too many pics to upload at one time.
