Don't forget to vote for me in the hidden compartments contest.
Step 1: Cut the Hole
Find the space you want to put it (i put mine in the side of the drop down* in my basement), then trace the vent cover. Use the Sheetrock saw to cut the hole.
*what i mean by a drop down is where the duct work for your house runs.
Step 2: Cut the Box
You need to cut the box to fit inside the hole, just to keep everything together.
Step 3: Place the Vent Cover in the Hole
Place the vent cover in the hole, after you've stashed everything, secure the vent cover with the Sheetrock screws.
Step 4: FINISHED
Now that you've finished, go vote for me in the secret doors and compartments contest.
