A friend of mines, asked me to build him a couple of night stands. He said his new bed is much higher, and he has to reach down, and he also wanted something with a little extra, somethin' somethin'. He wanted it to look like a simple table, but as the second pic shows, there's some storage in there, for his gun safe and other valuables.
He didn't request this, but I'd like to figure out a way to latch the top down, where as if a burglar would attempt to lift up the "cover", it wouldn't come up. And then he would give up, seeing its just a table. But I don't want it to show. Any ideas? Maybe something underneath.
