Great Craft and Gift Idea: Book Safe

Looking for a fun unusual gift that you can easily make yourself in a single day?  Why not try your hand at making a book safe?  I followed the instructions from the hilariously named website The Art of Manliness (btw…this isn’t my first time on that site!)  The book safe I made was for my brother, so I went to my local library which has a “book store” and purchased a used spy novel for $1 (he likes the genre so the book safe will look at home on his shelf PLUS they are voluminous which makes for a nice size safe.)  Check out the finished product!  He absolutely loved the gift.
