I’ve always been intrigued by secret hiding places. I’m so bad in fact, that i’m officially leaving it up to my fellow lumberjocks to alert my relatives not to give anything to Goodwill without close inspection should i meet an untimely demise.
I started out trying to cut this books pages with my razor knife. Well…....That was ridiculously and painstakingly slow. So i ended up getting out my old trusty Bosch jigsaw. Even THAT was a chore! I had no idea how cutting a books pages would rival the task of cutting 8/4 Rock Maple. Maple is probably easier since it doesnt tend to wiggle around while gnawing the teeth off the blade.
The box is a fairly simple Spanish Cedar one. I used 3 penny finish nails for the hinges. I figured no bottom to the box would give me more depth. So the bottom edges of the box are glued straight to the books rear cover.
