On this project I am planing on making a piggybank and a secret safe. Of corse the choice is up to you on what you are planing on using it for. This project does take some time.

First: what you will need is an old Book or to. I got mine at a flee market for cheap. Then you will need some white/wood glue, and water. It also helps with wax paper. The tools I used was a paint brush and racer blades, I also used something to mix in and mix with the glue and water with (plastic cup and str.)

First I will do the Piggybank and Then the steps that are changed on the secret safe.

Step 1: Glue

Step one: First you should blend the glue in with water. Get the blend thin, about 50/50. Then mark the center of the book and add a pice of wax paper, the wax paper is for letting me have a gap in the end of the build to cut in the paper. I then spread the glue with a cheap paint brush on the sides of the book.

On the secret safe you should place the wax paper in the front of the book instead.

Step 2: Drying

This is the longest step. what you want to do is to get some pressure, by placing other books on or just use your hand. After it is dry to the touch you can add an other layer, and let it dry over again.

This is the same on both Books.

try a drug stor

You are missing the point. Gardenpunk is trying to call you out for saying racer blade instead of razor blade.

or a hardwear store

Nice, do you think it would work to use a dremel to cut out the pages?

Yes it would work I used it once, but be careful it is easy to burn.

Oh, the great classic of classics... "Your Hidden Stuff" by Hide le Secret...
