Hidden Lock Liquor Box

This is a retirement gift for a Master Sergeant in the Air Force. The object behind this request was to make a traditional looking plaque that could house a bottle of Jack Daniels Whiskey. Only they wanted it hidden, locked and no hinges.

The box is still missing the engraved plaque which wont be ready until earlier next week that will be placed under the opening. However my work here is done.

One coin is a retirement Air Force coin. The other is a Civil Engineering Coin.

Thanks for looking!!

Great idea! How do the lock knobs stay in? Friction, rare earth magnets, some other device?

Its actually just friction. I lightly sanded the dowels to were they were loose enough to be able to pull them out but tight enough that they can’t easily fall out. Also the length of the dowel helps keep it in place.

Be careful, I would mistake it for a “break in case of emergency” kind of thing

Ditto the “In Case of Emergency..” :)

I am actually looking for a “in case of emergency brake glass”. My boyfriend had one and I dropped in on the floor and broke it. You can all stop laughing now. Please help me find another one. Myra
