if you're looking for a safe place to hidesomething precious, the obvious choice would be in a safe. and it's probably just as obvious,to the criminals who wanna steal your stuff. sometimes the best place to hide something,is where people least expect it. so in this project we're making a super secret safe,that only you know about. for this project you'll need one of theseextra long, electrical gang boxes, made for existing walls. you'll also need a blank wallplate, like this. now search around your house for a clean section of wall, and use a studfinder, to locate an area between the studs. when you've found a spot that works, measurea height that matches the outlets nearby, and add half and inch. now line up the markwith the bottom left corner of the box, and

trace around the sides. this is where you'llneed to cut into the wall. go ahead and stick an envelope under the markings, and selectyour cutting tool of choice. you can see that when you begin cutting into the sheetrock,the envelope catches the dust, reducing the mess that you'll have to clean up later. it'simportant to cut carefully, and with shallow strokes, because there could be electricalwires behind the wall, and you don't want to cut them by accident. when it's all cutout, you should find that your blue box pushes in perfectly, and rests flat against the wall.when you adjust the screws in the corners, you can see that it tightens the flaps atthe back, securing the box tight to the wall. at this point you can start loading your safe,with something important. perhaps some stamps

you want to save? a set of spare keys maybe?..what about emergency ammunition? whatever you put in there, when it's all tucked away,simply add the cover plate, and screw it together. chances are, no one will ever guess there'sanything hidden inside. if you wanna go one step further, try pushing some furniture infront of the cover, because out of sight, means out of mind. now, if the time comeswhere you need to open your safe, but you don't have a screwdriver, no problem. justuse the prongs from a plug. the blades fit perfectly into the screw-heads, allowing youfull, and easy access. now there are plenty of modifications you can make to this thing.for example, if you plan on using this a lot, and can't be bothered, with unscrewing itevery time, try drilling out the screw holes

with a 9/64" drill bit. then add a dab ofsuper glue, to where the screws meet the cover plate. this way the screws will be held fastin place, and now you can just line up the holes, and press it together, in an instant.if you want this to blend better with the surroundings, try adding an outlet to thefront of the box, and a finishing plate over that. now your secret safe looks like allthe other outlets in your house. have you got so much stuff that you need a bigger safe?try upgrading, to a double-gang. this gives you nearly twice the storage space, and installsjust as easily as the others. as a final thought, if you don't want to spend the $3 on materials,or cut holes in your walls, just look for one of these cable jacks around the house.the cable's protected, there's plenty of space

inside, and it's a great place for hidingthings, like your list of computer passwords. not only is this option free, but chancesare, you've already got them all over the house. well now you know how to make an easy,secret safe, for hiding important stuff. if you liked this project, perhaps you'll likesome of my others. check them out at
