Making A Book Safe by Rolling Hitch

In this guide, a scroll saw is used to create a hollow part inside the book.

To start off, you will need to gather the following materials: an old hard-covered book, which has the right size and width (in order for you to easily place objects of the same size and width); a scroll saw; a hammer; a drill; some nails; two pieces of waste board, which has the book’s would-be hollow part outline; glue; and rubber cement.

Next, fold the book’s front and back covers with a few pages on each side. These pages will serve as the hollow part’s bottom compartment, as well as the loose top compartment. You’re also going to need the two pieces of waste board, in order for you to hold the rest of the pages together while cutting through it with a scroll saw. To do this, nail these boards on the pages – but only lightly, just enough to hold the said pages together.

Then, drill a pilot hole for the scroll saw’s blade to cut through easily. It should be large enough for the saw blade and with the hole’s edge placed along the hollow part outline’s edge. Begin cutting on the hollow part outline using a scroll saw. Once the pages, along with the attached waste board pieces, are removed, apply glue inside the book’s now-hollow part with a rubber cement. This is for the top and bottom parts of the cut pages to be held together and for the outside edges to look natural.

And there you have it – your own book safe!

In conclusion, making a book safe doesn’t need to be all that fancy or hard. All you need to have is the right tools and materials, as well as a dose of creativity. From there, you can even unleash more of your creativity by outlining specific items for the book’s hollow part like a gun revolver, a jewelry box, a, money safe, or a tackle box. With that, you don’t need to worry so much about having your personal and other important things found or stolen easily.
