We have decided to make a secret compartment inside of a cabinet drawer. We hit a lot of bumps in the road and it could have been better.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get a Cabinet.
Here we have a cabinet in one of our classrooms that the teacher has let us use.
Step 2: Take Out a Drawer.
Here we have the drawer from the missing space in the above picture.
Step 3: A Piece of Scrap Metal (last Available Picture)
Here we have a piece of scrap that was left around from another project. We will be using this piece to serve as a cover for the secret compartment.
Step 4: Cut the Metal
The metal we have from the picture above is 12" by 14 1/2". We will be using a laser metal cutter to cut this piece to fit over the inside of the drawer to act as a cover.
Step 5: Supplies.
