    It's a very simple concept, but it takes a lot of patience to make everything work properly. I didn't bother to show 95% of the "fit" process because that would make for a very long, very boring video. Lightly sand, check, repeat... its very time-consuming.

    The sides are Walnut, the rest is Cherry, the key is Purple Heart. For the hinge, I used brass rod and the finish is shown in great detail in one of my other videos (link below).

      thats awesome. Make a box with its own key that you keep somewhere inside a box and call it a secret box .....
      I've got a lock on my front door. Works just as well. LOL.

    Pretty, but pretty obvious that the box contains secret compartments. There is no other logical reason to have such thick ends to the box.

        Todd Vandenbark I disagree. Not needed since plans are available and there is a voice over version of this build available.

                      In most countries, as long as you declare the firearms to customs when you arrive, there is no problem. The authorities may take them into custody for the duration of your stay, then release them when you are leaving the country. The worst that would happen is that they would be confiscated, so check with the country's embassy before arriving.

                      What you DO NOT want to do is attempt to hide them from customs. That could get you a prison sentence - as they might decide to charge you as a smuggler, which is what you would be.
