It really is a small world!

Library Bookbox

Here’s an oversized dictionary that will become a library bookbox.  I removed all of the pages and built a 3/8″ plywood box in the same thickness as when the book was closed.  I applied a wallpaper to the edges that closely resembles the look of paper.

It will be set on a base and the inside will be finished with bookshelves and a chair for reading.

Long before I decided to convert this book, a local magazine highlighted this idea to use as a home “safe.”  Small valuables can be placed inside and the “book” put on the shelf among others so only you know which one hides the goodies.  Another idea is to set the bookbox on the coffee table and use to hide all those TV/stereo remote controls!
