What you’ll need to set up your secret junction/electrical box stash:
- Power drill/screw driver
- Drill bit
- Junction box
- Drywall screws
- Wire cutters
- Plastic cable connectors
Cost: about $10
He says it should take you just 12-15 minutes to set up and it’s an awesome idea for secret storage (that doesn’t take up much room) in your tiny house or cabin.
Or, your regular-sized house if that’s what you’re still living in now.
Derek goes through and shows you how to even set up the wiring so that it looks like it’s a real electrical box. This way would-be robbers would have no chance of stealing your hash. (kidding)

I had no intention of making one of these, but Deek’s videos are so dang hilarious I just had to watch.
