Many years ago I ran across a book called “How to Hide Almost Anything” by David Krotz. I decided to write a review of this book because of all the requests I have been receiving for information on stashing items.
While the book is a bit dated and not always easy to find it contains a lot of good information. It tells you how to create hidey-holes in sizes ranging from hiding a key to hidden rooms. It is an easy read and while it does not always give step-by-step instructions it gives you great ideas. From hollowed out beams to removable baseboards it covers every area of a home.
These types of hidey-holes will not stand up to a determined police search, but are great protection against burglars. If a burglar can’t find it they can’t steal it.
You can find used copies of it on the internet. I did a search and found it for sale from about $7.50 to $41.00 a copy.
