I really like the hidden drilled hole in the door. Our ceilings are only 6ft high though, so the doors are pretty much flush.

We have hollow installation walls in our bathroom with a small maintenance opening. I've got a small roll of cash and my grandma's engagement ring in a container glued to a string in there that I poked out of sight with a stick and then taped the black string to the wall.
The opening is too small to get your head in and look around so unless you know where to feel around or use a camera it's impossible to find. I doubt most burglars would go to that extent and even then there is a large possibility to miss it.
I could theoretically put a thin piece of wood in there to create a hidden compartment.

I really want one of these bookcase doors though. Not really to hide a room, just for a maximum of library aesthetics. :zomg:
And I have more books than wall space so it would be practical.

Add to this you can reinforce a box spring and/or platform bed and can get an unfreaking believable amount of additional storage space that no one will even realize is there.  I also know someone that took the guts out of a fold out sofa and framed it for supports and used that space to store most of her bulk paper goods.

But just need to laugh as most of the "hidden storage" in that article have been used by drug dealers and traffickers so if you are hiding something, remember the audience you are hiding it from.  LOL

Good point! Welcome, Kathy.

We're upgrading some computers at work. And I'm supposed to remove the HDD's and drill them to destroy them and trash the housings.

I was looking at these and if you take out the mother board, and the frame for the accessories, leave the power supply/fan and CPU fan, you have a good amount of grey man hidden storage in them.

It has an easy open side panel with a security loop, so you can put a lock on it to keep contents secure and also secure the box to a piece of furniture etc

I like the PC idea, the only problem is that potentiell thiefs are definetely going to take that.
They are going to be terribly dissapointed after opening it.
Until they find your hidden wad of money. :awesome:

I don't think so, thieves don't want junk, and this is big junk really, a giant, old PC tower? Plus it has a security loop that I will definitely utilize with a cable and lock. I'll show photos of that later.

If you had an old 42" plasma 'flatscreen' tv that is about 6 inches thick, would you be worried about someone actually stealing that? They couldn't get $5 for it. Same theory here. Not worth the effort. If you had an old rear projection TV, now there'd be some hidden storage space.

I have three old towers in my garage on a shelf, really old. So I could set this next to those, but I'm thinking I can actually set this up with an old k&m, monitor, and power cord. I have access to all that junk.

But we'll see, this is a test for feasibility, the frame removal might kybosh the whole thing if I can't get that out.
