Introduction: Book Compartment

This project is self explanatory, but I thought why not, here's how to make a secret book compartment!

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Shopping List

1. A book ( I really like the look of this antique book and it was cheap)
2. Some razor blades or sharp knife.

Step 2: Preparing

Flip to the third or forth page, or even the middle of the book, so if a spy sneaks in, at first and even second glance it will appear just a book.

Step 3: Marking

Once you have found a good place to begin cutting draw the shape you would like to cut out. The smaller the shape the easer it is. You could even trace an object you want to put it to make a snug fit.

Step 4: Begin Cutting

When you start cutting don't worry too much about rough edges in the end it will look great.

Step 5: Last Step

One you get the deepness desired, line the inside with felt. Thank for looking, also I really don't like the advantage the big name guys have but life's, so please vote for the under dog!

    Great Instructable, but I can't vote in good conscience because you destroyed a beautiful antique book in making it.
