Super Secret Hideout
We saved the best for last. No matter if you are eight years old or 80, everyone needs a secret place to stash valuables, candy, data, childhood objects, and the like. The book hideout turns your library into a secret stash for valuables.
Hardback books work best in this scenario to provide support for your belongings and a rigid cutting surface.
Also, if you have in mind what you’d like to stash in the new hideout, take a moment to select a book that will fully accommodate these valuables. You won’t cut out all the pages in the book, so keep that in mind as well as you select books based on their thickness.
The How To Do Stuff tutorial gives step-by-step instructions that look relatively easy to follow — just make sure to allow time for various drying cycles throughout the project.
