Design Scenario
I chose this project because I had a great interest in
making a false bottom lock box. After some research I
learned of a drawer whos lock mechanism was the
drawers being pulled out and aligned. I was fascinated
by the mechanism and wanted to design my own
unique box.
I designed this project so that I can learn about
simple solutions to problems and so that I could have
my own unique lock box.

Design Brief
I am going to design and make a hidden drawer lock
box. It will feature:
Three drawers that can be freely pulled out
If all three drawers are aligned in the correct manner,
the hidden drawer will become accessible
A lever to maximize the linear movement caused by the
peg key

!Highlighted the hidden compartment mechanism
featured in National Treasure 2
!It is a desk that has a concealed drawer that can
be exposed by pulling the individual drawers out
to a certain length
!When done so, a button would pop out
!If rotated and pushed, the secret compartment
would spring open
!A complex mechanism was devised to complete
this task

Inspirational Items
My most inspirational item was the hidden drawer
design as previously seen
Once I decided I liked this design idea, I did more
research and discovered other designs
I quickly found that my original similar design was very
unique and one-of-a-kind
Some other inspirational, not entirely similar, items
include:
