A quick and easy project, but one that’s been on my list for a long time (too many spy movies). Plywood box hidden in the cover of a hardback book. Magnets to keep it shut and the lining is artificial suede.

I’d love to see a blog on how to do this! That looks awesome – I’d be cool as a secret humidor or something!!

Hi Cjay, I’m with dakemer. You did a beautiful job on this, but I can’t help wondering about the book cover. Did you make that too, as the binding looks real!?

CJay, I came home this afternoon and made my son a ‘secret stash book box’. Unashamedly modeled on yours. Thank you! He literally beamed! He loved it! And for that I thank you.

Dakremer and LittlePaw this is just a square of plywood glued into the cover of a book (one i got in a charity shop and cut the pages out of) The only bit that can’t really be seen is that the plywood has some canvas glued across where the spine of the book is so that it will open like a book does. Hope that’s clear (though if not just ask, i’ll see if i can help)
Tokolosi, Glad to hear he liked it.
