Step 1: Materials and Tools Needed
You will need a saw. I use a chop saw and a band saw. A couple clamps. And some wood glue.
Step 2: Begin....
Begin by cutting a piece of wood 6 to 8 inches in length. Using a band saw cut off one side, then flip over and cut the other side. These will be your top and bottom . Choose the best side for the top and label so you dont mix everything up. Set aside these pieces for now.
Step 3: Cut...
Cut the middle piece length wise off center a bit so your stash space is a little bigger. Label these pieces and set the smaller one aside. Now cut out most of the center of the last piece using the band saw.
Step 4: Glue...
Glue and clamp all your pieces together starting with the center. Note: be sure you know which piece will be your top ,because this will NOT get glued.
Step 5: Once...
Once the glue dries your almost done. Too keep the lid on, I insert 2 little dowels into the top piece. Drill a couple holes in the same spot on both pieces, and apply a little glue to hold the dowels in place. Whallah... put keys , a note, or whatever you want inside and hide in bushes or some other inconspicuous place.
