The reason I decided to do this project, was so that i can hide my small projects from my family and also a small storage; so i decided to make secret compartment. I'm only going to say this once, but the only reason this thing looks sloppy is because I had to redo it multiple times trying to find something that will work. So instead of using a door hinge I did the next best thing.

Tools:
Hot Glue Gun
Knife ( The material I'm cutting through is Dry Wall, so it's soft)
Original Material That Was There
Pieces Of Wood
Measuring Tape
Pen/Pencil

Step 1: Mark Out The Area

Using a pen (or pencil ) measure the area with the measuring tape and then mark it out using the pen ( or pencil). For Me I had to use a wooden template since I suck at drawing lines.

Step 2: Cut Out The Area

Now this is the most crucial part of the project, and i can't stress how crucial it is. You have to cut it out slowly and steady or else it will mess-up the whole operation. as you can see I butchered mine's , a lot, so it looks messy. Another thing you need to watch is what your cutting with, the knife worked for me cause it can cut and it's thin. so you have to use a thin blade or cutter, like a dremel.

Step 3: Put The Base

Next using the hot glue gun, take one of the pieces of wood that would be good for a base and hot glue it onto the wall. your going to have to hold it there for a while until it hardens.
Optional: If you want you can take another piece of wood that can work for a base and make two shelves.
