I am interested in finding a source for some plans on creating “secret” boxes and band saw boxes. I purchased a box in Prague where the bottom slides and the side slides to open a hidden location for the key. I would love to make them, but I do not want to dissect the one I have. OH WELL!!!

Try this link: http://www.designer-woods.com/

This gentleman has a number of bandsaw boxes with secret drawers. He also has a unique bunch of boxes that he sells the patterns for. He also has a Youtube video showing how to make most of them. Good Luck! Let me know what you think.

Thank you Ken… The guitar one is AWESOME… The ole’ wheels are turning in my head. I am a band director by trade, and I can see those as being done…

Thank you for the comment and the link.

YouTube is awesome! I have found so many more ideas. There is one where the fellow makes it out of a piece of fire wood and not a squared blank!

Well there are a lot more there besides the guitar. Glad you enjoyed it. I cannot remember who turned me on to that site, but I too love secret drawers, secret anything. Don’t know why it interests me so much.

If that is a school band you direct, all I can say is thanks for what you do. Both my daughters were in band 25 years ago and now their children are taking it up.

Good luck with it and I hope to see a project or two related to that.

Thank you Ken… There are MANY good ideas there. I am going to go get a new blade and try something this week!

It is a 6-12 band position… a life long skill…

Take care!
