Play it safe

  • Build a real, functioning safe
  • 179 pieces are scored and ready for you to punch out and put together
  • A great project for makers young and old

You may not be in possession of the One Ring, but you're probably the proud owner of a few trinkets that you'd like to keep away from prying eyes or sticky fingers. This is extra important if you live in a dorm, have roommates or children, or work in a large office building. Trust no one, as our buddy Mulder once told us.

This little Mechanical DIY Safe is just the right size to keep a few small items secure. But the best part of this little contraption is that it's a kit - you put it together yourself. Made from premium grade plywood, the 179 pieces are scored and ready for you to punch out and put together. It's a fun project that requires no tools (although you may wish to have a craft knife handy and a small hammer to help things fit). We recommend that little kids have adult supervision, to help understand instructions, provide brute force, and to keep the smaller pieces from snapping. And once you're done, you have an actual functioning safe that can hide away your goodies.
