Hide-A-Key Stash Spot

Step 1: Make a Hide - A - Key (stash spot)

This instructable will show how I turned a scrap piece of wood into a secret Hide - A - Key.  This is another project that cost me close to nothing to build.  You will need a few power tools so be careful!!


Step 2: 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 3: 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 4: 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 5: 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 6: 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.
