Secret stashes Answered

Really enjoying this video by YiTing Cheng that shows lots of clever hiding spaces. The use of plywood is especially awesome.

I am reminded of the anime Death Note (kickass show). in the first few episodes, Light kept the notebook in a secret compartment in the drawer of his desk. i wanna make the exact same thing, but without the gasoline of course XD, maybe with a siren instead [Death Note Episode 2 10:10- 11:15]

Nice laptop storage. Definitely an idea worth exploring, especially with sensitive materials, such as laptops, money, passports, or anything like it with important data.

I don't know how she made it without the seams showing, but I'd probably use a 1/2" piece between 2 1/8" pieces. It's a great effect.

i think she actually USED seams to hide the seams....if you look closely at the edge of the table, it LOOKS like it's actually several sheets of 1/8" to 1/4" plywood laminated together to make a "solid top"....then she either routed out a cavity in the central "stack" of sheets (that make up the drawer) or didn't make that "stack" solid to begin with (use a sheet as a bottom, then build up the front edge from small strips of 1/8" ply.

for exaplemations. in retrospect, it looks like all of the furniture is made like this (if you look at the back of the table with the opening back it looks similar just with beveled edges on the inside portion)... you could probably do this a little cheaper using MDF since the plywood needed to not have "plywood edges" can get pretty expensive (it's actually layered solid veneers instead of wood chips in between the layers)

Very nice :-) Kind of reminds me of the secret compartment in the wall of my room at home, that my Dad never discovered :-)

I know the feeling. Whenever I get stressed, there is nothing like flipping open my secret compartment, which contains "books", which I "read", and open a few cans of "soda". It's quite relaxing. In all actuality, mine just has a Playgirl and a bottle of skittles vodka. *blunt*

Forum posts don't have to be Instructables- in this case it's just sharing a video that the site's readers, as "people who like to make things" might appreciate.
