You might find it easier with an exacto or hobby knife and a straight edge

If I had an Exacto knife I would have compared it to see which was best. The box cutter might have been sharper and easier to press down on, but the Exacto reaches further.

If you check out a crafts/hobby store you can probably find an exacto set with changeable blades. Some of the blades available are much larger than a box cutters blade.

Kudos to you cutting that opening with just a box cutter

They sell hollow books man. The Hollow Book Store

IME, don't get a HUGE, expensive-looking book.

I knew you could buy them on Amazon, didn't know there was a place that had such a variety.

I'll have to try another book, this time with Xacto knives. :-P

Nice job on the hollow book. I tried to do the same thing a couple years ago, also using a box cutter, but when I got done it looked more like I had cut it out with a chainsaw

Mine isn't THAT bad, but it is a little rough on the edges. :-D

I like it, looks cool to me. I heard Chris Rock say once that books were the best place to hide stuff....cause....Books are cyrptonite to crackheads!

Apparently there is a market for them. I was shopping at Christmas time and somewhere locally they had fake books rather than ones that have been hollowed out. Seems like it was Bed Bath & Beyond or maybe Pier 1. Can't remember but the quality was very good and they weren't expensive.

Saw this trying to find it online.

The Hollow Book Store
